Reviews for Cider Pork Chops
"In theory the recipe should be quite good, but as is I found it to be bland. I ended up kicking up the flavour with more s & p, Italian seasoning and garlic powder. If I were to make it again, I'd also either braise the chops quite a bit longer or use a pork tenderloin or pork loin."
"Sorry...would not make again. The pork chops were tender and I liked the onions, celery, garlic mixture but the cider vinegar was def. too sour/tart for out taste...and yes it was fresh...just too sour tasting. Edible, but I would not make again. REVISED!! OMG...my apologies, I used apple cider vinegar instead of apple cider or juice...Boy what a space head I am! No wonder it was so sour. I will try again..."
"Very good and tender and easy to make"
"Very easy, very tender. A definite make again meal."
"These chops come out so so tender off the skillet. I also didn't use apple juice because we nad none on hand, but I used Apple Strawberry Kiwi instead! These were still delisious and I will absolutely be making these in the future!"
