Reviews for Pork Chop Cacciatore
"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."
