MY REVIEW
Reviewed Jan. 1, 2015

"This was delicious!! I used thick, boneless, center cut chops instead so I had to increase the cooking time by about 5-7 minutes but the wait was so worth it. This is a great dish if you want to impress dinner guests or have a date night dinner. I loved it!"

MY REVIEW

"I expected this to be a lot better after reading the reviews, but I think it's because I didn't use the type of chops the recipe calls for. The sauce was good, but my pork wasn't. But, I am going to try it again!"
