Yes, the title says it all! This recipe was created by mistake. While using another recipe as a guide, I made the mistake of using cocktail sauce instead of chili sauce. Well, this was the best darn mistake I have ever made. These pork chops had the most wonderful zip to them! Mistakes like this should happen more often!

I decided to try this recipe at the last minute and didn't have 3 hours to marinade. After cooking the marinade I placed the pork chops in a baking dish and completely soaked them with the soy mixture then baked them 45 minutes in the soy mixture bath. For the last 15 minutes I put the pork chops on a rack and baked with the ketchup/cocktail sauce. The chops melted in our mouths and were delicious!! My family thought the cocktail sauce wasn't the best complement to the pork - so I might try it with the original chili sauce next time. Read More

I made this exactly as written and it was wonderful! I tried it again in my slow cooker and even though it came out juicer it was still very good though not as good as when cooked as per directions. To make in the slow cooker I used frozen pork chops so I also didn't get to marinade them either which detracted from the full flavor experience. Hubby really liked it too. This is a keeper.

Easy to make tastes great family favorite. Be sure to bake in shallow pan so chops will get crisp on outside. Read More

I enjoyed the recipe as is and for my taste I think that using sweet chili sauce instead of cocktail sauce would make this way too sweet! I will probably decrease the brown sugar next time but that's just me. Read More

My family loved them but I thought they were too sweet. I'll probablyl make it again though just cuz my family loved it so much. I did like the sauce on rice - I think eatcing the dish with rice helped thin out the sweetness a little....anyway - I'm just giving it 4 stars cuz my family loved it. Read More

Wow...this was really delicious!!! It was so full of flavour the right amount of spicy and sweet! BUT I used the 'original' recipe I love chili and don't really care for cocktail sauce so I didn't replace it. Read More

The salt content is a worrisome factor. Read More
