"I don?t understand the comments about the meat being bland. You eat the meat with the sauce because the sauce is flavorful. If you marinade the meat it could fight with the flavor of the sauce. I think this is a wonderful and easy recipe as is."

"Tried this recipe last night. Really enjoyed it. The cranberries plumped up in the sauce. However, I think I will cut down on the amount of mustard I use. It was a little too strong of a mustard taste for our taste. Otherwise, very easy to make. Will definitely make again."

"I'm not rating this recipe because I haven't tried it yet--plan to, though! I'm just replying to a comment by autiger02trey. I am thinking that an orange/chile marmalade I made, mixed with a little broth, might be a good marinade. I like orange and cranberries together. I also think the teriyake marinade sounds good!"

"This is the best recipe ever for chops. I think the sauce is really terrific & could probably be used chicken too. I think that pork is a little bland anyway & I agree with another reviewer who suggested marinating the meat. Still we loved this recipe!"

"The only thing that I would do differently would be to marinate the chops for several hours first. I don't know what would taste good, but I'm thinking teriyaki (please comment if you have other ideas for a semi-sweet marinade). My chops turned out very bland, but the sauce was FANTASTIC (5/5)! I'll cook this again with some modifications."
