I've had this recipe for over twenty years and love it. Since the children are grown, I now cook just half the recipe for my husband and I. And it's so easy! You'll be in and out of the kitchen in no time. —Ann Rogers, Ocala, Florida

"Delicious! I served this over white rice with steamed broccoli on the side. And yes, it should be simmered for 15-20 covered after adding all ingredients per original recipe in magazine."

"The recipe, as printed in the 'quick Cooking 2009 Annual' does show to cook 15 to 20 minutes after the sauce and vegetables are added. I used part of a pork tenderloin I'd thawed, and cut into slices . I served with mashed potatoes - hubby went back for seconds, and almost licked the plate. It will surely go into my favorites box."

"These pork chops were highly approved by the male members of my family--and one of them does not list pork chops on his favorites list! The only change I made was to add a sprinkle of cayenne pepper to the sauce--not much of a change at all. Recipe yielded an authentic creole flavor.Recommendation: Double or triple the rub ingredients for adequate amount to spread on both sides. Also can use commercial creole seasoning to sprinkle on chops."

"meat was tough. Maybe my cut of pork or needed to cook longer. Maybe simmer for 30 minutes?"

"Agree with the tip to reduce the amount of pepper. I used 1/8 cayenne. I may use 1/8 cayenne and 1/4 black instead of 1/2 tsp. Also, because of the quick cooking time after the veggies are added, they should be finely chopped. The flavor of the rub is excellent! Wonderful blend of spice! I will make in much larger batches and store in the fridge for future use. Yes, I will absolutely make this again! Great recipe Ann! Thanks for submitting!"
