MY REVIEW
Reviewed Nov. 24, 2014

"I made them in the skillet vs broiling them. I browned both sides then added the mixture and let them simmer in it for a bit. I used thick cut pork chops. My husband loved it!! It's a keeper for sure!"

"All the glaze seemed to slide off and the pork chops didn't have much flavor. My husband liked them, though."
