Reviews for Cuban-Style Pork Chops
"Delicious. Family really enjoyed. I didn't serve with any of the additional toppings, completely fine without."
"These are a nice change from other pork chop recipes. I did not have Dijon mustard on hand, so I used the coarse grain mustard I did have. I also left off the cilantro, since I'm not a fan. It was delicious."
"Delicious and so easy! My kids were not fans of the cilantro, so I would leave it off for the little ones next time."
