Pork Chops and Wild Rice

4 thick sliced pork chops
2 apples
1 cup brown rice
1 onion, diced
1 t. parsley
1 stalk celery, with leaves, diced
1 t. salt
1 C. hot water
1/2 t. chili powder

Combine everything but pork chops and apples in crock pot. Stir well. Core the apples and slice each one, making four rings. Place on top of the rice. Brown the chops on each side. Place on top of the apples. Cook on low 6-8 hours.

Notes: I found this recipe here. From the way the recipe is written, we didn't know if each apple was supposed to be sliced into 4 slices or if there were supposed to be 4 slices total, one for each pork chop. We made it with 4 slices/halves total. If we make this again, we will probably try it the other way. Also, the recipe doesn't specify what type of apple to use. I would be interested in trying different apples since the apples we used had a fairly mild flavor. A tart or sweet apple might be interesting.
