These zippy, tender chops are one of my mother's specialties. She's been making them for years. I still request this delightful main dish when our family gets together to celebrate birthdays and other occasions. —Lisa Andis, Morristown, Indiana

"Cooking these right now! To the sauce pan, I added garlic powder and a "shake your mama bootie jobkia freseo ghost hot sauce" for some kick! My biggest complaint is the instructions on this recipe, it doesn't say wether to marinate before cooking or when to add the sauce besides "bast with remaining sauce" and pour on reserved sauce. kinda confusing, might wanna reword the instructions.. otherwise I hope my hubby loves them!!"

"This has become a family favorite. It was a big hit. My family liked it just as it is stated. It had a really good flavor, and the sauce goes well over noodles or rice as well."

"I tried broiling this pork chops but my oven is custom broil so I had no idea at which temperature it should be cooked. Tried researching online but all the blogs said broil is a set temperature. Well, maybe back in the days because in my oven, which is pretty new you need to chose the temperature yourself. Anyway, after a while of my pork chops not cooking correctly I transferred to the stove with the sauce, left it for about 10min and the result, Some Delicious pork chops!!! I will make this again soon. Yummy!"

"This was okay. It was a little too ketchupy for me. When I make it again I think I'm going to pull back on that ingredient. Still a nice flavor though."
