Great recipe! I used a 1 1/2 # pork tenderloin that I browned and cut into 4 equal pieces. I baked the dish in a Dutch oven for 4 hours at 250 degrees.had to add one cup of chicken broth because it thickened a bit more than I wanted. I dissolved the corn starch into the chicken broth and it thickened up perfectly. Served with quinoa.
We liked the flavor, and I will make again.
This smelled amazing and tasted really good too! We made this for guest and it was enjoyed by all
I totally agree that the cooking time is way too long; I did it for about 4 hours on low. Also added about1/2 cup dry red wine and it was excellent.
These pork chops were delicious for such a simple recipe. The sauce had lots of flavor. I also cooked them for less time, about 6 hours; my pork chops were on the thinner side. I served it with egg noodles, but mashed potatoes would be great too.
