I often prepare a double recipe of these tangy chops, then freeze half to keep on hand. They're so easy and taste so fresh, family and friends never guess this quick entree was frozen! —Susan Holderman, Fostoria, Ohio

"Did these in my Crock Pot. They were great. I did cut the brown sugar and honey in half though. I will try this sauce with chicken.I am betting it will be just as good."

"I have made these twice. The first time I went by the recipe and the second time I left out the brown sugar and added unsweetened applesauce. Both were delicious."

"Couldn't be much easier! Followed the recipe exactly, but cut it in half. Was worried there might not be enough sauce, but there was plenty. Great flavors. Terrific for weeknight dinners."

"Flavor was excellent.. I only gave a 4 because I did not trust the recipe (cooking pork) for the times, and overcooked them. Will definitely try again, and trust the recipe!"

"I use boneless pork sirloin, and they are really tender. Some pork is rather tough, and it not cooked long enough will test your dentures. I dredge the pork in flour, salute in EVOO for about 5 mins ea. side. Remove them a keep warm. Into the pan I add chopped onions and red bell pepper and sweat this down a little, add some carmelized onions and continue by adding the pork back into the mix and some veggie broth which you can make yourself with carrots and celery ahead of time.

Let this come to a simmer for at least one hour, Then test the pork with a toothpick to see if it is done. Works for me....."
