When the main component of dinner is frozen solid, it's often easier to order carry-out, but this recipe takes advantage of frozen pork chops. I buy my seasonings from the Savory Spice® Shop, although feel free to use what you have on hand.

A reminder this is for frozen pork chops. If you started from refrigerated pork chops this may be your mistake. Read More

I made this exactly as instructed only changing the spices to what I had on hand. The gravy was amazing but my pork chops were too tough. I weighed them and was only off about an ounce. So if anyone can tell me why the chops were tough I will come back and rate this higher. Read More

All I had was garlic plus spice mix and it turned out nice. I also added cooked rice to the sauce mixture. It s a new favourite for me. Thanks for sharing this recipe! Read More
