What’s For Dinner? House Autry Pork Chops with “Fried” Apples

I’ve noticed the House Autry coupon around for awhile, but I had no idea what House Autry products even were!  When I realized that the House Autry products are on Advantage Buy for just $1.53 though, I decided it was time to try them out at our house!

I also love Cracker Barrel’s Fried Apples, and since my hubby brought home a dozen apples from his parents apple tree I knew I had to figure out something to do with them.  (I really wanted to make some Southern Living Apple Cake, but I’m trying to hold off on that one until it’s a little cooler!)  These apples were  so easy, and taste almost like the real thing for just a tiny bit of effort!  (They’re also gluten free for any of you with wheat allergies in your home!)

Here’s what you’ll need to have a yummy Southern dinner at your house . . .

4 boneless pork chops

On Sale $2.99/lb.

1 package House Autry Southern Baked for Pork

On Advantage Buy $1.53, use $.50/1 HERE

4 large or 8 small golden delicious apples

If you know someone who has an apple tree this is a great way to get them free!  If not grab a bag of apples on your Publix run 🙂

2 cups apple juice

1/2 cup apple juice (separated from first apple juice)

Juicy Juice 100% 64 oz, BOGO $3.49, $1/2 or $2/4 Nestle Juicy Juice Products

3 tablespoons corn starch

1 1/2 teaspoons cinnamon

5 tablespoons sugar

$.30/1 Domino Sugar

Preheat oven to 425 and cook pork chops according to directions HERE.  While pork chops are baking, slice apples into thin slices.  (It’s up to you if you want to leave peels on or not, I took mine off just because I was using my peeler-slicer-thingie that takes them off for me!)

Combine apples and 2 cups apple juice in medium skillet.

Combine apples and 2 cups apple juice in skillet over medium heat.

Gently simmer apples on medium heat, stirring frequently. Meanwhile, mix corn starch, remaining apple juice, cinnamon and sugar and whisk until smooth.

Add corn starch mixture to juice in skillet.  Heat over medium high heat stirring constantly until thickened and bubbly.

Remove apples from skillet with slotted spoon and add cornstarch mixture to hot juice in skillet. Cook over medium high heat.


Continue to simmer over medium high heat until thickened and bubbly, stirring constantly (yummmmm!)

Pour cinnamony goo over apples and mix well. Serve and enjoy!

    I to have been looking for a fried apple recipe like they make at Cracker Barrel. This one looks great, but do I have to use cornstarch to thicken it?
