Reviews for Baked Sweet-Sour Pork Chops
"Have not yet had pleasure of making these (been waiting for sale on boneless sirloin pork chops). Will be making in crock pot,,,Thursday. K."
"very bland recipe...family did not enjoy at all....won't be adding this one to the repeat list."
"I increased the recipe by 2.5 and used a 20 oz can pineapple, used celery in place of the green peppers (my family doesn't like them) and regular soy sauce and they came out delicious. I did have to allow a little extra cooking time for them to get tender. Wondering how they'd do cooked in the slow cooker?"
