"I was looking for a new way to make Pork and ran across this recipe. My friends all tell me that this is my best dish. I've adpated the recipe some to free up my time. I brown the chops and then put them in the bottom of a casserole pan. Mix up the other ingredients and pour over the chops. Bake at 350 for about an hour. Wondeful way to spend time with your guests while dinner is cooking!"
