"These were a hit with my family! The boneless chops I had were very thick so I pounded them out and adjusted the cooking time. I don't buy garlic salt so I simply used some garlic powder and kosher salt and omitted the garlic in the oil. I added some fresh herbs the last few minutes of cooking. The chops were perfectly cooked, moist, and favorable. We will certainly be making this easy and elegant looking dish again soon!"

"I loved these crisp, garlic chops. The bit of lemon at the end really freshens them up. I also like how easily you can omit the salt. Unfortunately my husband didn't like them, claimed there was nothing special about them. So I won't be making these again."

"Amazing flavor and quick to make. I used a spicy pork rub for the garlic seasoning. The rub does not make very much so you may need to make more if you want more flavor."
