"Oh, so good! I used thin cut pork chops and did not add salt as pork is salty enough. Really good flavors in this. Will definitely make again!"

"Quick and delicious. I used kentucky style whiskey and turned out great. I also added a little red pepper flakes to the sauce. Definitely will make again. To the other reviewer about using Brandy instead of bourbon, I don't see why not, the alcohol burns off anyway."

"This is one of those recipes you read and have to go out and get the ingredients and have that very night! It was fantastic!! It didn't look like enough spice to go around, but it was. Wouldn't want any more chili powder than it had. The meat cooked for 4 minutes on each side. Try it.....you'll like it!"
