My husband loves pork chops. Whenever fall comes around, he’s begging me for Braised Pork Chops with Apples & Sweet Potatoes . Ok, maybe don’t go and look at it. This was one of my first blog recipes ever…and the pictures certainly need an upgrade.
As much as he loves this meal, it’s a PAIN in the bum to make. Lots of wasted time peeling, dicing, stove top cooking and baking in the oven — it’s no wonder why I would drag my feet to make one of his favorite dishes.
So I had to make a 21st century upgrade to the dish — aka the busy mom version. I kept the moistness of the pork chops intact, as everything simmers in sweet apple heaven. Getting the kids to eat this meal? Not a problem. Ready to make your winning gourmet meal for the busy mom (aka throwing a bunch of stuff in a pot and pushing the on button)? Let’s do this.
Don’t forget the crock pot liner!

This recipe looks amazing! And all the tastes of fall are my favorite 🙂
Does the sliced onion go on the bottom with the apples and potatoes or do they go on top?
Rae – I did on top and bottom to evenly flavor both 🙂
Looks delicious! Just wondering if you could sub in normal potatoes for this recipe?
Hi Alison, I bet you could! The recipe would be a little sweet for regular potatoes though with the apple cider mixture. Just keep that in mind
Mary Songer says
I wouldn’t have thought of using sweet potatoes but it looks good. I’m always looking for great crock pot recipes. Thanks for the recipe.
Kelly M. says

So I have a lot of juice/broth left over in the pot. What should I do with it?! I can’t let it go to waste.
I recommend saving and reusing for a crockpot roast! Perfect fall seasoning
