MY REVIEW
Reviewed Jul. 26, 2014

Made this for dinner tonight. My husband loved them. Will definitely make again.

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Jan. 11, 2013

My whole family enjoyed these. Pork chops are not my favorite but I actually look forward to them when fixed like this.

MY REVIEW
Reviewed May. 8, 2012

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.

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Mar. 14, 2012

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

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Feb. 2, 2012

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!
