"Great when served with teriyaki rice."
"i'm not a pork chop fan because their always dry. with this recipe i love them! i always receive lots of compliments!"
"This recipe is definately a keeper!!! The pork chops were moist, tender and very flavorful. I marinated for about 8-9 hours but I will let them set overnight next time.....the longer the better, I think."
"Unbelievably delicious - can't wait to make these again! We used boneless chops that were 1 inch thick, and it took 32 minutes to get them done,"
"This is delicious! The marinade has just the right amount of everything for that sweet-sour taste. Will definitely make again. lmr67"
