Applesauce Pork Chops

An old favorite that's easily adapted to be gluten free.

1/3 c cornstarch
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp pepper
4-5 pork chops (it seems like I usually make more pork chops with the same amount of sauce)
2 T butter
1 c chopped onion
1 garlic clove, minced
2 c unsweetened applesauce
1/4 c brown sugar
1/4 c soy sauce
1/4 c apple juice
1/2 tsp ground ginger

In a shallow bowl, combine cornstarch, salt, and pepper. Cut pork chops in half and flatten to about 1' thickness (I always buy thin-cut chops, so I eliminate this step.) Melt butter in a large skillet. Dip pork into cornstarch mixture; add to skillet and brown on both sides. Place in an ungreased baking dish. In the same skillet, saute onion and garlic until tender. Add remaining ingredients; bring to a boil. Pour over pork. Cover and bake at 350 for 1 hour or until juices run clear and meat thermometer is over 160.

I made these last night. We all loved them! Well, except for Audrey, who is currently a vegetarian. I couldn't believe how tender they were. Yummy!
