"I made this last night for dinner and it was delicious! It could easily be stretched to have 6 pork chops and still have enough stuffing."

"I enjoyed the simplicity, even tho I had to make sure I had all the ingredients at the same time. I added a little olive oil with the butter to make sure the pork chops didn't stick to the pan. It makes a nice visually attractive dish, and is very tasty, too!"
