Recipes of Pennsylvania Dutch heritage, like this one, are popular in our area. We like to serve these sweet-and-sour pork chops with dumplings or spaetzle, red cabbage coleslaw and applesauce, with Dutch apple pie for dessert. —Joyce E. Brotzman, McVeytown, Pennsylvania

"A true taste of Lancaster County PA. I really don't think you need to thicken the sauce with the cornstarch/water mixture. The sauce thickened enough in the oven!"
