"Very good recipe as written and also a fun recipe to make your own! This is one of my favorite recipes for pork chops. I usually add apples and onions and brown them after browning the pork. I have also used apple brandy when I did not have cider on hand."

"Made these last night and they were delicious. Didn't have any dried sage so subbed with poultry seasoning. Will make again and use sage but I can't imagine it'll make that much difference. Very quick and easy."
