Apple Pie Pork Chops

When I first shared this with a reader she got a little flipped out because she thought we were baking pork inside a pie. {Giggle, giggle}. I suppose one *might* think that based on the title but that is definitely not the case here.

I got this idea one night when I was trying to use up items in my freezer in order to clear space for my next cooking day. I had an apple pie kit and a some pork chops in my freezer and they just seemed like a perfect combination. It turns out I was right!

Ingredients:

  • 8    cups    apples, peeled & sliced
  • .75    cups    sugar
  • 2    Tablespoons    all-purpose flour
  • 1    teaspoons    ground cinnamon
  • .5    teaspoons    ground cloves
  • .5    teaspoons    ground allspice
  • 1.5    pounds    pork chops

Directions:

Place pork chops in the bottom of a slow cooker. In a separate gallon zippered bag place all of the ingredients except the pork chops. Mix. Once mixed, dump on top of pork chops in the slow cooker. Cook on LOW 6-8 hour or HIGH 3-4 hours.

Freezing Directions:

Add all ingredients except the pork chops to a ziploc bag. Squish this around so that the apples get coated and the spices get mixed around. Add pork chops to the mix (1.5 lbs per bag) or freeze them in a separate gallon bag. Then put this in the freezer.  To serve: Thaw both bags (apples and pork chops). Place all ingredients in a slow cooker and cook on LOW 6-8 hour or HIGH 3-4 hours.

Servings: 4

  1. 24 cups of apples??? How many apples is this? That sounds insane to measure.

  2. Kelli says:

    Is that 24 cups of apples cored and sliced? I am thinking not, but wondering how many cups it really is.
    Thank you

  3. Kimberly says:

    Should that say 2-4 cups apples? 24 seems a bit high!

  4. Great story about how this recipe came about. Apple pie mix + pork and voila! Thanks for linking up to No Whine Wednesday!

    Tricia,

    This sounds intriguing to me, but I think you have the wrong amount of apples for 1.5 lb pork. 24 cups of apples is a lot!

  8. I just made this tonight and it was AMAZING! Like coming home to dessert for dinner! I doubled the recipe (except for the cloves), I used 5 medium apples and I subbed all splenda for the sugar. The 8 pork chops, plus the topping came to 273 calores a portion. Very nice! Thank you!

    Hello! i am wondering if you blanch your fruits and veggies before storing in freezer for the crock pot recipes. I cant wait to give this a try! oh and i love the blog, i just found it and bookmarked you!

  10. Bernadette says:

    I have a large crockpot. What size did you use? Cook times vary based on crockpot size. Don’t want to burn 1.5lb of yummy pork chops! :-/

  11. Bernadette says:

    * I have a 7 quart crock pot

  12. Cindy says:

    Thanks for your receipes……we had the Applepie pork chops today! They were so good….I did use Splenda . Never liked pork that much but will make this again!

  13. Andrea says:

  14. Shareen says:

    Probably a silly question but…
    Do the pork chops go in the bag raw or should they be cooked already?

  17. Peg says:

    Bone in pork chops or boneless?

  18. Angie says:

    Prob a dumb question but do you not need any liquid in the crock pot? maybe a little bit of water or apple juice?

  19. Steph says:

    Made these today – they are Soooo good! My husband ( a picky eater) wanted to clean the kid’s plates ;) We will be making these again and keeping a few in the freezer too. Thanks for the recipe!

    I’m having a hard time pinning this to Pinterest (I’m new at it!) I seem to get an error message that says “You need to upload an image or provide the ‘image_url’ parameter”. Any thoughts? I’ve made this recipe twice before and would hate to lose it!

      After this page fully loads, above the picture (below the post title) you should see a “pin it” button. If you click on that it will pin for you without having to do the other things you mentioned.

  21. Amanda Adams says:

    I followed the recipe to the tee and this was really bland and lacked flavor. Really glad I tried it before freezing a lot.

  22. Mama Owl says:

    MMMMM! This is going on the menu for next week!!! I think I might try granny smith apples though. That’s what I normally use for our fried apples. Can’t wait!
