WHEN I saw this recipe in the newspaper years ago, I thought it sounded so good, I immediately went out and bought all the ingredients. Not only was it easy, the kids even raved about it. Almost everyone who has tasted it asks for the recipe. --Lisa Polson, San Rafael, California

"I also added some chopped apple. It was delicious!!"

"I altered the recipe quite a bit, and it was very tasty. I used a small shallot & 2 cloves garlic because I didn't have onions on hand, and rather than bake the chops, I cooked the shallots in the pan juices after browning the chops, then returned the chops to the pan along with the sauce (I omitted the water and doubled the vinegar & Worcestershire), covered the pan and simmered until cooked. Then I thickened the sauce after removing the chops. It got rave reviews from the family."

"I made this tonight and I was just not impressed with it. I don't know if it's that you're suppose to use real maple syrup and I just had pancake maple syrup but it tasted weird."

"I am not good at making pork chops. I usually ruin them. But this recipe made them so easy! They came out very good. And the sauce is unbelievable! This was a big hit with my husband and two children. We will for sure be making this again soon."
