MY REVIEW

"This recipe is absolutely delicious!! I am not a big cook, but during a rare week off for me, I spent a lot of time on the Taste of Home website searching for recipes I felt I could handle. I came across this one and had everything I needed to make it. I reduced the cooking time a little because the pork chops I had were boneless and thin cut, but everything was tender and delicious. Even my teenage son, who is a pretty picky eater, loved it!! I would definitely recommend giving this one a try."

"I make this recipe all the time, although cut back on the amount as it is just myself to cook for now. Like others, I add more broth to make a bit more sauce, and put the chops on the bottom to cook until near the end, and then transfer them to the top. I do add garlic though and a little dijon mustard as I find the dish a bit bland otherwise. A great dish though, no matter how you cook it."

"Made this a one pot meal by browning the pork chops in a 12" cast iron skillet then removing them to a plate (I only had 4 - 1" loin chops). Next I made the gravy scraping the bits from browning the pork chops. Had read reviews and put the pork chops back in the gravy followed by the onions and potatoes. Pulled the pork chops back to the top during the last 30 minutes. Perfect! Excellent meal and hardly any dishes."

"Wow! I made this dish tonight and my entire family LOVED it (& they can be very picky--3 teenagers)!!! I had 2 packs of pork chops and followed this recipe for 1 pack and a different recipe for the other pack. This one won - - hands down! I used everything listed in the recipe, but used Lawry's Seasoning Salt with the pepper. This is by far the best pork chop dish I have ever made. Something to note: After an hour, I took the cover (tin foil) off and checked the pork chops and potatoes. They were done, therefore, my meal was done in 1 hour instead of 1 1/2 hours. I'm so glad I checked them so that they didn't end up dry. This was an easy and delicious 5 star meal that I will be making often! (*I did not need to double the sauce because this recipe made plenty of sauce.)"

"Excellent!!! Best Pork Chops & Scalloped potatoes ever! Our whole family loves them! I also put the chops on the bottom, and then in the last half hour after removing the cover, I brought them to the top, to brown up a little bit more. 15 minutes one way, then turn them over and 15 minutes more. This time can vary, if the potatoes arnd chops already tender...may only need 10 minutes on for each side. Enjoy...pure deee-licious! ??"
