Ginger and plum sauce add Asian flavor that makes this dish a standout. A side of crunchy coleslaw is the perfect partner. —Taste of Home Test Kitchen

"My husband isn't a fan of pork chops but he did like these. I also thought they were very good, not your usual tasting pork chop."

"This recipe is very delicious but I will make a couple of changes when I make it again. I will double or maybe even triple the sauce. The sauce is rather skimpy and not enough to go around. It was easy to scorch and I had to keep adding more liquid. I added sweet and sour sauce to the sauce I prepared the broccoli coleslaw in. I think when I make it again I will omit the plum sauce and just use sweet and sour sauce. I also added some garlic powder to the coleslaw and served a side dish of fried rice with some of the sauce drizzled over it. All and all it turned out delicious and my husband loved it too. Yes, I definitely will be making this again."
