Tangy Pork Chops Recipe

Tangy Pork Chops Recipe

Fancy enough for company, these mouthwatering pork chops also make a great family meal. I usually have all the ingredients on hand. Since my husband and I just had our first child, this recipe is so convenient—I start it during naptime for a no-fuss supper later.—Karol Hines, Kitty Hawk, North Carolina

"We won't be making this one again. The pork chops were still somewhat tough after cooking for the allotted time. The flavors weren't interesting enough either. My husband and I agreed that this was not a keeper."

"I didn't have the veggies on hand, so I just mixed and used the sauce. My kids (8 and 4 -- both picky eaters) absolutely LOVED it. First time in ages both of them have cleaned their plates."

"I decided to try this as I wanted to make pork chops differently than we are used to. My family kept saying the smell was awesome! We were all surprised at how tender the pork chops were. We didnt even need a knife! The taste was even better than it smelled. This is a definite keeper!!"

"Good stuff! Made the sauce with less onion, used all I had, which was actually just a shallot. Left out the pepper, don't like when they get so soggy. Use a homemade ketchup (with no corn syrup) and put in a little red pepper flakes. Used a pork loin. This was really good!"
