Tender Pork Chops with Apple Onion Gravy and Mashed Potato's

From Weight Watchers, 4 pts per pork chop and 1/2 c of gravy
2 tsp reduced-calorie tub margarine
3 medium onions, sliced
4 3 oz loin pork chops
1/4 tsp salt
ground pepper to taste
1 c apple juice

In large saucepan, melt margarine, add onions. cook over medium-high heat, stirring frequently, 5 minutes, until softened.

Sprinkle pork on both sides with salt and pepper. Add pork and juice to onion mixture, bring lliquid to a boil. reduce heat to low; simmer, covered, 1 hr 15 min, until prok is cooked through and fork tender.

now.. we ended up using 2 packages of boneless pork loin chops. so I had a total of 11 small chops in the pan. I used 3 large onions sliced thinly and used 2.5c of apple juice. In the end I also made a rue to thicken the liquid to make my gravy. So you can adjust it as you like, just take the base directions and go with it. We wanted to make sure we had dinner and lunches for the next day. I ended up just simmering them for like 1 hr 45 min, and i wasn't sure they were tender, when I went to cut them they were so very tender. It was a great recipe, everyone loved it. The apple juice added just enough sweetness to the onions. Great flavor and with mashed potatoes how can you go wrong!!

Thanks so much for sharing this great recipe. I was wondering what I should do with some chops that I had frozen. I know that fresh is better.
