These tender, mouthwatering chops taste a bit like sweet-and-sour pork but require little attention or time. I prepare them year-round whenever I'm on a tight schedule but still would like something scrumptious.—Sally Jones, Lancaster, New Hampshire

"Very yummy. I doubled the recipe for the sauce and thickened it with cornstarch and served it as a gravy. The pork chops were tender and had a nice flavor."

"5 stars.. (the "star" rate isn't working). Added some green pepper, used only a couple of thin slices of onion (recipes call for way too much for us) and had mashed potatoes on the side. We both loved it! Added to my recipe box and will definitely make it again."

"My husband isn't usually a pork chop fan, but he loved this recipe. All of my kids really liked it too. I used white rice since I was out of egg noodles, but it worked."
