Creole Pork Chops' Haiku: "So disappointed. Smell was indescribable. But taste was lacking." Only change that I made to the recipe was to add 1 TB of cajun seasoning to the flour b4 browning the chops otherwise I followed as instructed and my mouth was salivating in divine anticipation of biting into these. But e-gads! This tasted like a whole lot of nothing; bland and yawn-inducing so I added a hefty squirt of Sriracha sauce but even that didn't make my tastebuds jig. Read More

This was easy to prepare and SO good! I too added some cajun seasoning to it. I served it over garden vegetable flavored rice and I am enjoying leftovers as I type. This is definitely a keeper that I would make again/serve to company. Read More

Followed some suggestions re: creole seasoning made a huge difference. Less simmering for the thinner chops I used and had an opportunity to use some leftover yellow and red bell peppers. Threw in a can of tomato sauce for a little extra to spoon on mashed potatoes. Family raved. Read More

Pork chops were very tender and great tasting. I added a little creole seasoning to them also and on the peppers and onions I sweated them out first before adding to the chops. Would make again. Read More

Great recipe! We ended up cutting the pork chops into bite size pieces and added some spices to both the flour and the sauce. They were so tender and juicy. Everyone gave it a 5 or more and said they want it again soon. Read More

I used fire roasted diced tomatoes added creole seasoning left out the Worcestershire and added some tomato sauce so I would have extra sauce to dip bread in slow cooked for 5 hours then shredded the pork and served over rice. I ended up with no leftovers and nothing but compliments! Great recipe!! Read More

YUM! I did as the submitter suggested and made this in my slow cooker. It was so tender it fell off the bone. Only a fork was needed no knife. My only change was to use a bottle of "Swamp Sauce" that I had brought back from a favorite restaurant in Florida (Rum Bay on Palm Island) in place of the tomatoes. This disappeared so quickly that I never got a photo. Next time! Thank you for sharing EMMI331! Read More

1/30/2012: Added about a tbsp of creole seasoning to the flour just to make it a little spicy. Otherwise I followed the directions as is and it was delicious! UPDATE 3/3/2017: Not sure why I rated 5 stars because without additional seasoning this recipe is bland for us. In 2012 I used 1 tbsp Tony Chachere's Original Creole seasoning (loads of salt and MSG in it). This time I used 1 tbsp Creole Seasoning Blend (from this site) and felt more seasoning was needed...about 1/2 tbsp more of this particular blend for three 1.5" chops. Without addition of any creole or cajun seasoning the recipe gets 2 stars; with the additional seasoning I'd give it 5 stars (replace the seasoning salt with a creole/cajun blend). Read More
