Reviews for Blackberry-Sauced Pork Chops
""This one's a keeper" was what my husband said! I used some black raspberry jam I had on hand and only had teriyaki sauce instead of soy- but it was delicious! I also brined the chops for 2 hrs beforehand which helped them not dry out in cooking ."
"Internal temp. should be 145 not 160 as that dries pork out to much. Other then that it is good."
"This was SO simple, & we loved it! My husband commented on how it looked & tasted as if it were from a restaurant. I used raspberry seedless jam instead of blackberry, & mixed fresh black & raspberries on top. Delicious!"
"Sauce was especially good. Guests raved about it."
