"Our favorite pork chop recipe. Quick, Easy, and so flavorful. I have substituted Pineapple juice or Apple cider in place of the wine & apple juice, and it also is very tasty."

"The flavor was wonderful, but the meat turned out VERY dry. This was a very short braising time, which I think was the problem. Maybe a fattier meat next time, and a longer time cooking."

"I did not have the time to do the braising and instead just used the rub without the salt. They were still delicious!"

"These were very simple and fast. I used chicken broth for the sauce instead of wine or apple juice and made a great sauce for the pork and mashed potatoes. Kids loved it and will definitely be making these again."
