Reviews for Ginger Soy Pork Chops
"Way too salty!"
"This has become our favorite recipe for chops!Only thing i change is to use low sodium soy sauce. YUM"
"My dear husband really liked them and even recommended them to friends."
"These were fabulous. I halved the recipie for the maranade, and I did general guessing on the vegetables because I didn't want to chop them up when I would be pulverizing them in the blender later."
"The recipe was very easy to follow and had a great taste. I substitued flour instead of cornstarch so i used 4 tsp flour and it came out great! My husband is very picky and tends to only like meals that his mother made when he was growing up & he loved this!"
"These chops were excellent and tasty! I don't think you need that much marinade for four chops, though. You could easily halve it."
