Everyone cleaned their plates when my mother made these succulent tangy sweet pork chops when I was growing up. Now, I get the same results when I serve them to my family alongside applesauce and au gratin potatoes.

"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."

"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!"
