Reviews for Autumn Pork Chops
"I have made this recipe for years,the whole family likes it. I usually use boneless pork chops instead of the bone-in kind. It is easy enough for a week night meal yet special enough for company. Don't let the curry scare you off, it is subtle and delicious."
"I've made this recipe many times. I love it! And it smells so good while cooking, too. It's a keeper for me."
