Reviews for Down-Home Pork Chops
"Very tasty. Double the sauce. Especially if your chops are thick."
"I had high hopes for the sauce after reading the reviews, but it was just ok for me. A little sweet with a bit of heat, but mostly tasteless. Chops were ok as well."
"Quick, easy and delicious!. Word to the wise: triple the sauce recipe. Have used with pork, and chicken to serve as pork chops, chicken as well as leftovers for stir fry with rice and meats over salad with oriental noodles and mandarin oranges."
"Really soft and tender. The sauce was also very tasty. I will definitely be making these chops again!"
"Good recipe. I was a little disappointed in the small amount of sauce. A hit with my husband. Convenient in that I had on hand all the ingredients."

"our dd "hates pork chops" but after clearing her plate informed me if you make these again I'll keep right on eating. These were excellent."
"Excellent recipe. Lots of flavor. I worry about recipes that call for sugar because I hate sweet meat but this is perfect. Definately will make again!"
"Surprisingly tasty. Doubled the sauce but not the pepper flakes as my husband doesn't like spicey food to much. As I had no pork chops at home I made it with chicken and used low sodium chicken broth instead of beef broth. The soya sauce I used was also low sodium. Turned out really well."

"This was quick and very easy. My kids even loved it."

"Simple ingredients but lots of flavor. Easy to make on a weeknight."
"Very good. Looking forward to having it again."
"I was surprised how good the sauce tasted. I thought it might be too salty because of the soy sauce, but with the brown sugar and red pepper flakes it was very good. I will definately make it again."
"Outstanding. My wife almost never eats more than a serving...she ate 2...This is a must cook recipe."
