Reviews for Italian-Style Pork Chops
"I thought this was good, just needed a few things like basil and garlic added to it.Cooked the pork chops with garlic pepper, basil and Italian seasoning on them. Always look at a recipe and see what spices and herbs could be added. Served with fresh artichokes and pasta for the sauce. Very yum!"
"Yuck these taste exactly like what they are, and that is like boiled pork chops. I won't make these again!."
