Reviews for Strawberry Pork Chops
"I liked the sauce, but next time I think I'll skip the strawberries."
"I was looking for a new take on pork chops and this was the ticket. It was a fun recipe with good flavor. I would make it again."
"I just picked these berries yesterday and used them in this recipe - what a hit! I love fruit with pork so it was a natural. I only substituted one thing - used Ken's Raspberry Pecan fat free dressing in lieu of the vinagrette - wonderful. Took half the raspberry sauce and half the berries and made my daughter's vegetarian 'chik'n' patties in the sauce as well. An amazing hit for her too."
"the aroma while cooking is wonderful"
