"Super good. I breaded my pork chops with prepared flour/bread mix. Everything else I followed. We bought some regular white wine. This was so good. All the kids ate it and I was afraid they we not because of the mushrooms. Nope they enjoyed it and asked for seconds. Really good recipe and super easy!"

"My husband lived in Germany for several years. He has a difficult time finding good German Restaurants where we live. I made this for him and my children and he couldn't stop raving about it. My children also loved it. It is quick and easy for this working mom."
