Chops with Mushroom Gravy Recipe

After driving my family crazy trying new recipes, I always return to this standby. These moist, comforting pork chops come out great every time. We love the rich gravy over the chops and mashed potatoes. -Loraine Van Broeck, Geneva, Illinois

"I am not a pork chop fan, but this recipe is fantastic. The sauce is amazing (even on mashed potatoes). The pork just falls apart in your mouth! I substitute fresh mushrooms for the canned, but otherwise follow the recipe exactly!"

"I made this last night for dinner and my husband and I loved it. I read the reviews first and did as another reviewer suggested and added celery salt and I added a little more lemon juice also.My chops turned out extra tender...falling apart in your mouth tender! I served it withgarlicmashed potatoes and green beans. I decided to make garlic toast instead of dinner rolls atthelast minute and it was very good dipped in the gravy. Will definitely be making this again!I forgot to add that I used fresh mushrooms too, because I don't like canned ones! :-)"

"I made this recipe exactly as specified, and I have been cooking a long time. These were the toughest pork chops I have ever had. Ever. When I made the gravy before putting it on the chops it was nice and thick as it should be. After cooking it was a brothy mess. I have an oven thermometer, it is in working order. I cooked the chops at the correct temperature. I tested the pork with a meat thermometer, it registered at the correct temperature. I took the juices from the pan and made a batch of gravy, adding seasonings to taste. There was no flavor to this recipe, other than from the gravy I made. I took a few bites and scraped my entire plate of food into the trash because I was so disgusted. I will try to salvage this by slicing the pork chops into thin bite-sized portions and cooking in it in a crock-pot with my gravy over the pork. Sorry that my review is so harsh. This is the first bad review I have ever left on any of the cooking websites I use. Usually if I find something I don't like I don't leave a rating at all so I don't drag down the recipe's rating level. But this recipe was really deserving of a poor rating and an explanation as to why I gave it."

"Adults liked it, kids not so much. Didn't have much flavour hot out of the oven, tasted better the next day as left overs:) Really went well with mashed potatoes, and I prefer red over green peppers. I enjoyed making this meal and will make it again."
