Apple Smothered Pork Chops

These Apple Smothered Pork Chops are another recipe that I found in one of my favorite cooking magazines, Simple and Delicious. I totally love the combination of apple and pork. They go so well together.

This recipe brings those flavors that I love together in a quick stove top meal. I did think that it sounded a little strange to put cinnamon on top of the stuffing mix. But let me tell you that it works so well in this dish. I am also not a big fan of packaged stuffing mixes, but I love it in this recipe. The apples in this also make it a nice fall dinner.

  • 1 6 oz pkg chicken stuffing mix
  • 4 boneless pork loin chops 6 ounces each
  • 1 Tbsp butter
  • 4 medium apples peeled and cut into wedges (I use granny smith)
  • ½ cup packed brown sugar
  • ¼ cup water
  • ¼ tsp salt
  • ¼ tsp ground cinnamon I just sprinkle enough to cover the dressing


  • Prepare stuffing mix according to package directions. Meanwhile, in a large skillet, cook pork chops in butter over medium heat for 2-3 minutes on each side or until lightly browned. Stir in the apples, brown sugar, water and salt.
  • Bring to a boil. Reduce heat; cover and simmer for 8-10 minutes or until apples are tender. Top with stuffing; sprinkle with cinnamon. Cook, uncovered, over medium heat for 10-12 minutes or until a meat thermometer reads 160°. Makes 4 servings.

  1. This recipe turned out wonderful. My kids and husband enjoyed this very much. Its easy quick and delicious. Thank You.

  2. Made this last night and it was so delicious. The pork and apples were a yummy combo! What a great fall meal. Everyone really enjoyed it. Thanks for posting this recipe. If you have any more “fall dinners” I would LOVE it if you shared! 🙂
    Also, made your apple fritters and I got a request to make “a huge batch” of them! Thank you again!!

  3. I thought for sure that my kids would turn their noses up at this. i did have a hard time getting them to try it but once they did, they loved it!

  4. I also have the recipe that Michelle mentioned, but I love the fact that this one uses fresh apples. I rarely buy canned pie filling, but I do buy regular apples. This looks so delicious!

  5. I do one very similar to this. Apple pie filling, browned pork chops next, and stuffing on top. I never thought I would like fruit and meat together, but pork really is perfect for it! I have been craving my apple pork dish lately, but I think I will have to use fresh apples this time!

  6. Thanks for posting this recipe! I’ve got about 8 pork chops in my freezer waiting for me to figure out what to make with them and a tree full of apples that needs to be picked! I think I’ll try this out tomorrow! Thanks!
