Reviews for Sweet-and-Sour Pork Chops
"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!"
"Easy preparation but just an average meal. Nothing to get too excited about."
"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?"
"I might make this again but it was a little bland."
"My boys loved it, even said it was excellent!!"
"This sounds delicious!I AM adding it to 'my recipes'STAT!"
