Reviews for Curried Apricot Pork Chops
"Made this for dinner last night. It was so easy to prepare and oh so delicious."
"This is a family favorite and always makes me feel like a culinary genius! I use canned apricots instead of fresh but doubt it makes any difference. I also omit the onions because, well, I just don't like them. I do however season the pork chops with a little onion powder to make up for it. I serve with either brown rice or tonights favorite, couscous! I HIGHLY recommend this recipe!!!"
"Very yummy indeed. I didn't use the nectar because I knew I would throw out the rest of the can. So I used chicken broth. I also did not have apricots so used a bit more of the preserves. This is some good stuff!"
