This was a good recipe that I will use again. Since the recipe called for vinegar, I used Apple cider vinegar. I also love Garlic so i used fresh garlic not power. The sauce was great over mash potatos and stuffing. Read More

This just had no flavor. Made it exactly as it was written and just not much flavor at all. Will not make again. Read More

I was wondering what to do with pork chops that I hadn't already done. This was a great recipe. I used a mushroom gravy and added fresh mushrooms. I also paired it with with mashed potatoes and roasted cabbage. It was delicious! Read More

This was really good! The chops were nice and tender and the gravy was delicous. When I first whisked together the gravy ingredients the smell of the vinegar scared me a little bit. It seemed strong. But I went with it and am so glad I didn't try and do something to "fix" it because it was just perfect. Read More

These were really good! I almost didn't add the brown sugar because I thought it was strange and I don't really like sweet entrees. I'm glad I did though it wasn't sweet and they were delicious! Read More

This was a huge hit with my family. I doubled the gravy ingredients, then browned my chops and added them to the crockpot with the gravy. I cooked them for 5 hours on low. I added cornstarch at the very end to the thicken the sauce. Served with mashed potatoes, it is a winner! Read More

Just finished this recipe and OH MY GOSH!!!It has rave reviews in my household full of picky eaters. I substituted brown gravy for brown onion gravy and it blended together nicely. I also served it with Red Garlic Mashed Potatoes another recipe I found here and the sweetness of both complimented each other very well. This is a keeper! Read More

I tried this recipe "as is" and it was very good. The second time I made it I had forgotten the brown gravy mix so I substitued i packet of Lipton Onion soup mix and it was fantastic! My family loved it and so did I. Read More

Our pork chops were a cross between chops and steaks. You could really smell the apple cider vinegar while mixing this all together. After just one bite you will be glad you followed the recipe. Next time I will double the gravy because it does start to crystalize. Paired this with "garlic and herb mashed potatoes" from this site. Great and easy meal without all the fuss. Read More
