Reviews for Cranberry-Maple Pork Chops
"I made this for my parents a few weeks ago and they just loved it. They ask for it every other week. I love the cranberry/maple glaze! This is a keeper!"
"so good on chicken as well"
"My family loved it!!"
"Delicious. My finicky husband even liked it. The only change I made was I only had the Jellied Cranberry Sauce on hand so I used it and added a half cup of dried cranberries. I believe I'll do the same next time I make it. Enough left over for another meal. Iserved it with frozen corn and rice. I added some of the sauce to the leftover rice to keep it moist. I used 4 pork chops instead of six but kept the rest of the ingredients the same quantities."
"I made the dish with only one change. I added the Maple Syrup to the mixture rather than drizzling the chops. Excellent! I also used thick center cut chops and the meat was tender and moist cooked according to the recipe. We will use this again and again, both for a family meal and dinner parties."
"Delicious! Don't like the sweetness of grape jelly, so subbed unsweetened apple sauce and it worked fine. Thanks for sharing this recipe!"
"Very flavorful and simple! I substituted 1/2 apricot and 1/2 strawberry spreadable fruit for the grape jelly because that is what I had on hand. I also had to substitute 3/4 of the maple syrup with corn syrup because I ran out of maple syrup. I would make this again and try it with the recommended ingredients, but wouldn't hesitate to sub out again if I had to."
