"This was okay. I cooked my pork chops for about 15 minutes and they were dry. The sauce was a weird mix of sweet and tart. Maybe I just didn't like the flavors or maybe I used too much ketchup and sour cream. Idk. It wasn't terrible, but I wouldn't make it again."

"I ran out of sour cream so I turned the pan drippings into a gravy and they were delicious! I don't miss the sour cream at all!"

"I made this for dinner last night and it was WONDERFUL!!! The chops remained tender and the sauce was great over the chops and the rice side that I served. My only suggestion is to double the amount of the sauce, because it's sooo darn good, you won't want to run out!"

"I made this and served it over rice once and noodles another time. It's really simple and delicious. I cut the pork chops into cubes and cook it that way, so it's easier for the kids to eat. Thanks for the recipe Norma! It's a keeper."
