Reviews for Braised Pork Loin Chops
"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."
"Made this for dinner tonight. My husband loved them. Will definitely make again."
"My whole family enjoyed these. Pork chops are not my favorite but I actually look forward to them when fixed like this."
"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!"
"Just made this for dinner tonight. It was fantastic and easy to make. I used savory instead of sage. Will definitely be making this recipe again!"
"Delicious, but too salty four our taste. Next time, I'll half or eliminate the salt."
"A family favorite! They're quick and easy, and great when I need a last-minute meal."
"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."
