Reviews for Elegant Pork Marsala
"Easily one of my favorite recipes! Even good as left-overs!"
"Always use DRY Marsala....even in desserts!"
"My husband made this for one of our Saturday night dinners. I loved it, and so did he. We made one small change...we used pork tenderloin because that's what we had. Thanks for posting, Kim."
"Bacon makes this dish. Also I used bone in pork chops for added flavor !"
"Loved the turkey bacon in it - wonderful smell, wonderful taste, have put it in my recipe box. I used chicken broth instead of wine. I used extra olive oil when I was preparing the mushrooms, onions and bacon. Every once in awhile I sniff the wonderful smell that it left in my kitchen. Will definitely make it again."
"My boyfreind and I loved!!! this recipe. I bought 8 thin sliced chops. I'm all for healthy, but used regular flour instead. I did though spend the money on the turkey bacon and crisped that up in the microwave first. perfect! I bought the marsala wine at my local grocery store which was a dry & sweet combo. Definitely saving it to my recipe box*****"
"Recipe does not state which wine....................dry or sweet? This makes me burning mad. I go get all ingredients and then find out at the liquor store there are both kinds! C'mon Taste of Home you should know better!"
"Okay but not special and I did not care for the after taste."
"We just did not think the taste was that great."
"Didn't like the turkey bacon with the pork chop. Maybe my chops were exceptionally lean, but I had no drippings in my pan at all. The bacon did not become crisp (more the texture of rubber bands!) IF I ever made this again, I would eliminate the turkey bacon all together."
"This recipe was delicious. We usually have center cut chops but I purchased the boneless for this recipe and my family loved it. I did not have the wine so I used the extra chicken broth as suggested. It work well. we will certainly have this again."
"This is a keeper. I only had a package of 4 pork chops, and it still worked. I had planned on leftovers, but my SO didn't leave any!"
"Best pork marsala ever? I'd say "absolutely!" My dad and I love this dish and make it often, mixing up the types of mushrooms just for fun!"
"It was delicious. I did not have the chops so I made medallions out of a pork tenderloin. Since I did not have any wine, I added about 2 Tbsp of cooking sherry to the chicken broth. I also think I would put a little salt in the flour and pepper mix. I plan to make it again!"
