It’s hard to believe the wonderful flavor of these tender chops could come from such an easy recipe! Our taste panel loved it. Pair with noodles and a simple green salad, and dinner’s served. Tracy Hiatt Grice - Somerset, Wisconsin

"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."

"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."

"We really liked this - made a mistake with the water, added all (1/2 cup) at the 1/4 point, but thought adding the cornstarch to 1/4 cup of the juices was more flavorable. cooked for 7 1/2 hrs.and the pork was falling off the bone. Also, my husband asked for Mashed potatoes instead of noodles and mixed in some of the sauce with them!"

"I made similar years and years ago. I put a layer of rice on the bottom of a pyrex pan, browned the chops and layed them on top of the rice; topped all with my veggie sauce on top, covered with foil and baked in a 350 degree oven for approximately 45 minutes. No muss, no fuss, super easy."

"Wonderful flavor. Be careful with the length of time in the slow cooker. 2 to 3 hours may suffice."
