I didn't like the 'traditional' style of pork chops, so I experimented and discovered this recipe. My family loves it and never went back to traditional. And it's easy!

The recipe was a success. A great one-skillet meal. I also added chopped black olives. Next time I'm adding fresh chopped mushrooms too. To ensure flavorful pork I marinated the chops while I was prepping the veggies. I cooked it at a med-lo temp only stirred twice and because my boneless chops were more than 1-1/2" thick I let 'em cook an extra 10 mins. Just in time too as a little fond had formed in the last few mins of cooking which gave the veggies an extra punch of flavor and was fine with me. The chops were perfect! Read More

Delicious! I always try to make these as close to original as I can first time. Glad I did. Note here is only for others like me who might not have all ingredients on hand. I used 2 green bell peppers and did not have banana peppers. I used lemon but didn't have lime. And I used red wine vinegar because that's what I had. I did sprinkle a little Cajun seasoning in the chops too but it was probably not needed. They were really flavorful and the veggies were too. I added about a tablespoon or two of butter at the end a small pat on each chop to keep them from going dry and add flavor. I really loved this recipe. Thank you so much for sharing.!! Read More

We enjoyed this! The peppers mellow a little bit as they cook but still have good flavor. My pork chops were thin-cut so they cooked in about 20 minutes. I'll definitely make this again. Read More

The meat came out very moist but was lacking in flavor. The veggies were good though next time I would probably use less bell pepper. My hubby said he would have liked some mushrooms tossed in too. Read More

I didn t make it exactly as written because I didn t have all the ingredients. No lime and I used cabbage and peppers for the vegetable base. Used a thick bone-in pork chop and seared it on both sides. I scaled it down to one serving and it came out great. Tender & juicy. Cook time wS Read More

This came out with great flavors and my husband liked it a lot. My chops took longer than 25 minutes because we like them well done. I also made some changes: used fresh garlic oregano in addition to other Italian seasoning. In addition to paprika I also rubbed the chopps with a little mustard seed powder and cumin--I didn't have Cajun spices. I also fine sliced the peppers and onion Julianna style for a more escabeche look. I will cook it again! Read More
