"The sauce didn't thicken as much as I thought it would, but these were tasty anyway. I really liked the taste of the apple cider vinegar and may try a different flavor next time I make these."

"Very flavorful. I used dijon mustard instead of honey dijon mustard because that's what I had home. YUM!

"My family raved about these. I made 8 thin cut chops and the 3 of us demolished them and wanted more for leftovers! So, so good."

"My husband who doesn't really like pork chops said it was a nice change from the regular pork cops. I made 2 pork loin chops with the same sauce and added a 1/2 tsp of corn starch with all the ingredients and it made a nice sauce. If I made 4 chops I would double that sauce. They stayed nice and moist. A keeper"
