"These pork chops were amazing! I had to improv a bit but it worked out well. Didn't have pepper jack cheese so I used mozzarella instead. Also sauteed shallots with the mushrooms. Really incredible flavor!"

"We LOVED these pork chops--they were so juicy and flavorful! Even though my kids pulled off the cheese and mushrooms, they still really liked the meat. This recipe is a keeper!!"
