Pork Chops and Baked Apples

Hello Everyone,

Tonight I made seitan pork chops with baked apples. I'm pretty happy with the results over all, next time I may try to fry the seitan. I baked the chops because I wanted to see how it turned out baked (I hate to fry foods because of the smell).

Enjoy,

Lucas Franklin
