My mom often served this dish when relatives were visiting. The night before, I'd watch her prepare the soy sauce marinade. As the pork chops baked the next day, the tantalizing aroma would fill the kitchen. It was always a hit! -Cris O'Brien, Virginia Beach, Virginia

"very very good. I cut marinade in half and it still had great flavor. It really was too much sauce. Next time I will cut sauce in half. I will definitely make again!!!"

"I also cut both the marinade and sauce in half. Next time I will also cut back a little on the sugar, too sweet for me. Did enjoy the recipe though, chops very tender, moist and tasty. Will make again .. tessietessie1"

"I used 5 pork chops and cut the rest of the recipe in half, and there was still way too much marinade and way too much sauce. It wasn't absolutely horrible, but wasn't that great, and I don't think I'll make it again."
