Bring to a boil and put on lid. Adjust temperature to a low steam and cook for 1 1/2 to 2 hours depending on the thickness of the chops. About 1/2 hour before dinner add the chopped apples and a little water,if needed.
I like my pork chops very tender, fall off the bone type, so that is why I cook them so long.
You should have reduced the liquid by less than half.
So you will have a little liquid to spoon over chops, but not enough for extra gravy.
