Reviews for Sweet Onion & Cherry Pork Chops
"This recipe looked great and I planned to triple it to make in a larger slow cooker to serve more people. I'm sure it is delicious, as my adaptation (in which I made many changes) came out great. I couldn't find frozen cherries so I used cranberries; didn't want to use honey so substituted brown sugar and orange juice. I'm sure it would be absolutely wonderful with the cherries. The cranberries and orange gave it a whole different flavor, but a delicious one. Would definitely make this again and will continue the hunt for frozen cherries."
"I made this recently and will certainly make it again! Very tasty and a "keeper"!"
