When my applesauce was simmering in the crock pot, I knew I would be serving it with pork chops. I served them with buttermilk mashed potatoes and an Autumn Salad with Pears on the side.

I love this dish in the Fall because it’s super easy, quick to make (only takes me 20 minutes) and it’s filled with those sweet and savory Autumn flavors that remind you Thanksgiving is just around the corner. Oh, and did I mention this dish is also low in points, low carb, keto, and gluten free.

You can make this with boneless or bone-in pork chops; center cut pork loin chops are a good option because they are pretty lean, just be sure not to over-cook them so they don’t dry out. According to the USDA, cooking pork to 145° F and letting it rest for three minutes will give you juicy chops that are safe to eat.
