Pork Chops

this is what i cooked last night and i was surprised at how juicy and tender these chops were.


Pork Chops - baked - juicy - flavorful

6 pork chops
6 cloves garlic, sliced or minced
2 cups celery, diced
2 or 3 Italian hot peppers, rough cut
1 onion, diced
4 apples, sliced
1 cup white wine
1 cup apple juice
1 can black olives with juice
1 teaspoon black pepper
1 teaspoon salt
1 tablespoon cooking oil (your favorite)

In a large skillet, add the oil, peppers and onions and just sweat the onions.
Add the garlic and then the chops and just brown the chops on each side.
preheat the oven to 270 F and when the chops are just brown remove them and put them in a large baking pan.
Add the remainder of the ingredients to the skillet and bring to a boil for 2 minutes.
Pour over the chops and place in the oven for 30 minutes.
Turn the chops and continue for an additional 30 minutes..
Increase heat to 425 F for 15 minutes, turning the chops once.
 
Serve

he olives actually begin to shrival and pack a lot of flavor
