"There are four very strong flavors coming together here and the combination just didn't work for me. The leftovers, with time for the flavors to marry, tasted much better."

"I adapted the recipe for the slow cooker even though someone else said it didn't work. I thickened the sauce with a little flour mixed in cold water and slowly mixed it into the sauce till thick. Pour over pork in slow cooker. Unfortunately, I can't remember exactly how long I cooked it. Pretty sure I cooked it on low for about three hours. It was fork tender and delicious! My husband loved it too!"

"I made the recipe as it was written. It needs absolutely NO changes, as it's perfect. Even my picky 2 and 3 year olds ate them, and they hate meat! It will definitely be on my menu regularly."

"Very tender pork chops. I would have liked more sauce to serve over my rice but otherwise good. Hubby thought it could have used more maple and a little less coffee."
