Reviews for Deconstructed Pear Pork Chops
"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 haven't made this but wonder if you could use regularl stuffing as I don't like cornbread?"
"This was easy and delicious, the whole family loved it! Will be making this over and over"
"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."
"Love this recipe and very tasty!"
"Easy and a hit with the whole family."
"I tried this recipe the other day and it was a hit with the family! Everyone kept going back to the pan for more. This had a nice mix of flavor and texture and left us enough for a second meal."
"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!"
