This was a delicious and simple recipe. The pork chops were very tender. There is quite a bit of the sauce but it is basic enough that you could use it for other things. The next time I make it I will try making only half the sauce because that would probably be enough for just the pork chops. Read More

This was tasty and fairly easy to make. My chops were done in about an hour. So dinner ended up being earlier than expected. Thanks Read More

I thought this recipe sounded pretty good so I tried it and it was good. My husband said it smelled really good and then he ate some with the dinner rolls I made (grannyrob's old plantation rolls) and said it was great! I loved the sauce on the rolls they went wonderfully together! This was also very easy to make...I will be making this again. Read More

I absolutely love this recipe and make it quite regularly for my family. To spice it up some I always add some Cajun seasoning and let the chops simmer until falling apart. Serve with garlic mashed potatoes (with a mountain of the sauce) and simple veggies and the dinner is always a big hit! Will make again and again! Read More

Very simple and good. I added bit more spice than garlic using oregano and rosemary. Served it with brown rice and veggies. Delicious. I also found that I had a ton of sauce left over. I just put the leftovers in my crock pot and heated it up the next night and served over whole grain pasta. Simple and flavorful sauce to use as a quick meal! Read More

This was very similar to a recipe favored when I was a kid...basically only difference was using minced garlic and slicing onions (thin rings). The sauce was preferred a bit thinner and served with mashed potatoes. Talk about finger-lickin' good -- bones were picked clean as a whistle!! Read More

Most of us aren't big fans of pork chops so we were looking for some way to disguise them and this recipe sounded like a winner. My 16-year old son made this for dinner tonight and they came out delicious. He followed the recipe exactly adding just a little garlic powder and crushed red pepper to the sauce. We were all chewing the meat off the bone; that's how good they were! The sauce was really good too and we saved the leftover to put on something else tomorrow. Thanks! Read More
