Reviews for Sweet 'n' Tangy Pork Chops
"Very good! I usually leave out the diced peppers and it's still super yummy!"
"I have to triple this recipe for my family of 5 because they keep coming back for more!"
"I enjoyed this; I thought the sauce had a good flavor. I cooked the diced peppers with the sauce so they would be soft."
"Tasty, but, mine turned out a bit dry and I only simmered mine for about 6 minutes. My daughter thought it tasted like teriyaki. The sauce was too thick (my mistake, I used a tablespoon of cornstarch instead of what the recipe called for).I will certainly try this again, but I will cut down the cook time and use the listed amount of cornstarch and water."
