Reviews for Baked Barbecue Pork Chops
"I liked the taste, but the sauce was too watery for me. Next time, I will add less water."
"Not very moist and ended having a more of a boiled meat texture"
"i love it it looks good and it must tast good"
"Sauce was watery, there was no barbeque taste at all. I followed the recipe exactly, except I didn't have any celery seed."
"These chops were great. Very tender and sauce had a good tangy bite. Used leftovers next day for pork chop sandwiches, just added a little onion to leftover sauce and heated it up and spread over buns. Took meat off bone and made a tasty sandwich. YUM!"
