"My husband and two kids rave over these moist chops," reports Robin Czachor of Appleton, Wisconsin. "Use the mild sweet-and-sour sauce to make a gravy that can be served over mashed potatoes or rice," she suggests. "Then add a salad and you have a very satisfying meal that didn't keep you in the kitchen for hours."

"My husband was skeptical the first time I made this recipe, but it has since become one of our favorites. However, I am not a big fan of slow cookers, so I make this on top of my stove and allow it to simmer for an hour or so before we want dinner and I think it has better flavor from the stove top. I always serve this with garlic/cheesy mashed potatoes and some sort of a veggie - mostly brussel sprouts. LOVE this and have shared with many friends, too!"
