MY REVIEW
Reviewed Apr. 9, 2014

I think this recipe could have used a lot more seasoning. Salt would have been a good addition. I almost added it when cooking the pork chops, but wanted to make it as is. Should have gone with my gut. Luckily I made this recipe with the Pea Pods and Peppers Recipe on this site as well so we mixed that in with the pork recipe on our plates and that added a ton more flavor.

The pork chops turned out very tender, however, I thought it was a little bland. I may make it again just to see if it would turn out differently.
