I like this skillet dinner because it`s quick , but mostly because it`s really good. Served over brown rice or whole grain noodles, it is healthier than most comfort food dinners. I like this dinner because it a meal in 30 min. I fix this a lot because my family ask for it and it does not cost a lot to feed 6 people. With a salad and fruit it`s a good meal.
When I want to get dinner on the table, I look for recipes that meet my EFF standards—easy, fast and frugal. These sweet and delicious Apple-Balsamic Pork Chops score on all three counts. —Jami Wells, Boise, Idaho
This is my favorite "penny pincher" skillet supper. Sweet red peppers add color and flavor to this main dish, but when I'm watching our budget, I use less expensive green peppers. —Jorie Welch of Acworth, Georgia
“My daughter and I made this recipe to create a special meal. I saw all the fat that went into it, and at my age, I can’t handle all those calories,” writes Betty from Sun City, Arizona. Our pros made a few changes to the recipe to improve its nutritional profile and found that Makeover Pork Chops with Gravy captures the home-style feel of the original recipe, but with less than half the fat.
"I like this dish because you don't have to prebrown the meat and it's easy to multiply for more servings," says Jennifer Stewart from Gowanstown, Ontario. "I usually make extra sauce to use as gravy for the meat and potatoes."
On days I volunteer at church or shuttle between after-school activities, I'm glad this dinner comes together in one skillet. The sauce makes the chops so moist and tender. I also simmer it up with other meats like beef or venison steaks.—Tammy Messing, Ruth, Michigan
