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

"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!"
