"This recipe has way too much sodium per serving for my family. I lowered the sodium 938 milligrams per serving by leaving out the 1/4t of salt called for in the recipe and by making my own cornbread and crumbling it. I don't add salt to my cornbread, use the easy recipe on the box and also use no-sodium baking powder."

"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!"
