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 just tried it !! SIX STARS !!!

EASY - loved it too.


1 - Marinaded it in a small portion of the sauce for a half hr . Then discarded the sauce from the marinading bowl for sanitary reasons . Very little sauce was thrown away .

2- Chopped onions + let it sit for 10 mins because this improves the potency in the onions + garlic when You use it in any recipe .

3 - Browned it for 3 mins on each side like the recipe says in "Canola Oil " ...after this I washed out the pan and used "Olive oil " for 30 secs per side . Olive oil loses its goodness when in the pan too long and canola is generally a good + cheap cooking oil to work with .

4- After all the browning was done put it on very low and let it simmer for 20 mins

5 - Quickly gave the frying pan a light scrubbing + rinsing so nothing was caked on .

6 I froze the remaining portions

If YOu haven't tried this , I think You will find this very easy to prep , cook + clean after as well as a very enjoyable dish

I have used this sauce recipe for chicken for years. My family LOVES it. I never thought to use it with pork chops. You can bet I will try it tomorrow.

This dish was unbleepinglievable! All I had was some pork loin that I had the butcher slice into inch thick chops, so I sliced that into strips. Also, I added Vidalia onion salad dressing to the mix and an extra helping of chopped sweet onion. Then, I let it simmer on almost low for 30 minutes covered. Served over rice with a side of buttered green beans and a breadstick rolled in butter and parmesean cheese. Dessert was sliced watermelon. Thanks Taste of Home!
