My family is one of several pork producers in this area, so I'm always looking for pork recipes. This one's easy to make because you don't have to brown the meat before baking. That's one of the reasons I like it so much.

"My family enjoyed this recipe. I used smoked pork chops instead of a center cut chop. The sauce kept the chops moist and delicious! When using smoked pork chops cut the cooking time to approximately 45 minutes. I will be using this recipe again!"

"My husband didn't like it so much ... I agree with the previous reviewer that it was a little bland. Maybe pineapple chunks would have made it more interesting?"
