I agree with other reviewers that this is a little bland. I think that brining the chop prior to flouring it and cooking it would make it much juicier and give it more flavor. For brining I usually use a warm water solution of salt brown sugar 4-5 cloves of garlic (pressed or minced) and maybe a 1/2 a tablespoon of pepper. This adds a huge amount of flavor to the pork. I highly recommend it. Read More

I modifed this slightly. Since I was already using the oven after sauteeing the onions and peppers I transfered everything to an oven proof dish and baked it for about 30mins at 350 oC They came out really moist and my husbandand really loved them. Read More

Wonderful and flavorful recipe Charmaine. I did add my own seasonings and also placed about a cup of uncooked rice right into the mixture (with a bit of water) The rice absorbed the wonderful sauce and the chops came out moist and tender. Read More

I LOVED this recipe albeit with a few modifications. I mixed together a 8 oz can of tomato sauce with a can of Rotel. After I browned the pork chops and sauteed the veggies (I added a TBSP or so of garlic) I put them in a 2 QT casserole dish poured the tomato mixture over the top put the lid on an baked it in the preheated oven at 350 degrees for 30 minutes. The dish was extremely flavorful and filling. I served it over rice. I will keep this on my regular rotation. Thanks for the recipe Charmaine! Read More

This was very good and easy to put together at the last minute. I ended up with too much sauce and nothing to eat it with. Next time I'll serve it with a lot of rice. Read More

These were quite good and easy to make. In fact I put all of the ingredients into a crock-pot and let them cook all day. I served the chopes & sauce over cooked egg noodles. Hubby liked it. Read More
