Reviews for Saucy Pork Chop Skillet
"Very good, fast and easy"
"This was a good meal. I am always looking for different things to make for dinner. Flavors were a little different."
"We didn't really like this recipe. My pork was tough."
"I did not particularly care for the blend of flavors in this dish. But since my husband liked it pretty well, I averaged our reviews to a 3."
"Very tasty! The sauce was awesome and my husband loved the dish. I usually dread pork chops because they always turn out dry when I cook them, but this recipe made them moist and delicious."
"Great for a week night! I used boxed four cheese rice, which tasted yummy with it, along with fresh steamed broccoli. I did salt and pepper the chops....definitely needed it. But this is an outstanding recipe!"
"I would make this again as an alternative to my usual pork chops."
