Reviews for Spiced Pork Chops
"I have had this recipe for many years from an old Taste of Home. Wonderful recipe!!!"
"The coating on the meat was good. But the sauce was well...ketchup with a bit of brown sugar. I could have done the same thing with a bottle of BBQ sauce and had better flavor in the sauce. I will use the spice coating again, and bake the chops, but the rest, no thank you."
"Kids loved it"
"Very good! Like others mentioned, there was a little too much flour in comparison to the other spices. Next time I'll up the spices!"
"This is my favorite way to prepare pork chops. So flavorful, especially the sauce. Even all 7 kids like it!"
"Followed the recipe exactly. Very tender, moist, and flavorful. A hit with the entire family."
"I have made these pork chops for years now. Always a hit with everyone…All ages.Perfect in my book. Just as written !!"
"Yummy recipe. Ended up being a bit overdone even after taking them out 5 minutes early...that's the only reason I give 4 stars. But overall the recipe was good and I would definitely make it again."
"Loved these chops......lots of yummy sauce to put over the chops, potatoes, etc. easy to prepare. I made them in a cast iron skillet so it easily went from stove top to oven in one pan. Less mess to clean up later is a bonus in my books!"
"A winner in every respect....a five star recipe w/ great flavor! I reduced the flour to 1/4c as suggested and there was plenty to coat the chops. I poured some of the sauce on the bottom of the dish before adding the chops. Served the chops and sauce w/ large egg noodles, but think they would be better w/ mashed potatoes. A keeper for sure."
