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."
"I made this last night. It was good. I served it with mashed potatoes. The sauce was nice and the pork chops were tender and juicy. Simple and quick."
"Made this for dinner tonight. Very tasty! Served it with basmati rice and fresh green beans. This one is a keeper. Next time I make it, I will add some minced garlic with the onions."
"This was an easy recipe and turned out GREAT! It's a definite keeper for my recipe box. I used the thick center-cut boneless pork chops and peppered them and gave them a light dusting of Tony Chachere's before browning (not sure if that was necessary, but my they were a hit)."
"This was quick and easy, my family loved it."
"This was so easy to make and delicious. The simple ingredients made a very favorful meal. Served with rice and broccoli. Will definetly make this again."
"Easy to make, good flavor. The chops turn out nice and tender because they're cooked in the sauce. Serve with some corn bread for a tasty meal."
"My whole family loved this! I made it with a side of couscous instead of rice. The pork chops were juicy and really flavorful. Definitely a keeper!"
"This is a very simply-flavored dish, and it's quick and easy to make. I had to split it between two saucepans because 6 pork chops is too much for one pan!"
"Really liked this recipe, tangy tomato sauce with basil over the pork chops and rice, very tasty and easy to make"
