Reviews for Maple Glazed Pork Chops
"My man loved this and so did I. Will make again.Made as is and served it with baked sweet potatoes and green beans with onions and mushrooms.SOOOOO Good!"
"These were really yummy and appreciated by everyone at the table!! I made a couple of changes to the recipe however.......I used Mrs. Butterworths Lite pancanke syrup to cut the sugar and calories down some and I only used a sprinkling of the brown sugar on the pork chops (maybe an 1/8 cup sprinkled over 4 med. sized chops). I couldn't even imagine using the suggested 2/3 cup of brown sugar. You'd never get through the crust. I will definitely be making these again."
"Didn't look like it should've but boy did it taste good"
"Very easy to make and we loved it!"
"This had a wonderful flavor, but the thick layer of brown sugar made such a hard crust that it was difficult to eat. Next time I'll try cutting down on the amount of brown sugar, making a thinner sugar "crust". Also, if you don't want a nightmare clean up job, grease the pan!"
"This was a wonderful recipe and would work fine with boneless pork chops as well. The mix of the sweet and tart was just right. I broiled them right in the baking pan and that worked fine."
