Reviews for Tender Maple-Glazed Pork Chops
"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 didnt have dijon mustard so i used regular mustard. And I didnt have regular coffee. I used Kona Coffee chocolate macadamian flavored. it turned out really good."
"quick, easy and delicious. The pork chops were flavorful and juicy, done perfectly without drying out."
"This was wonderfully aromatic while cooking and wow'd everyone at the table. I threw a coiuple sliced cooking apples in the sauce and served them on the side. Husband wanted to know when we get to have them again!"
"My family loves this recipe, including 2 small children. We double the sauce so we an serve it with mashed potatoes."
"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!"
"This recipe was fast and easy. I followed the recipe exactly and it was so savory and delicious. The chops were tender and the combination of flavors was superb. Definitley a keeper!"
"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."
"I added the pork chops back to the liquid before it was reduced and turned up the heat. Excellent!"
"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."
"I thought the sauce turned out very nice. My 8 year old gobbled the pork chops up...which is sometimes no easy task!"
"This recipe is really easy to make and tastes great. My husband doesn't like coffee, but he asked me to make it again. Even my kids ate it!"
"I gave it four stars, but my husband would have given it five. It was just a bit dry for me. But the glaze was excellent! Will definitely make it again for my pork chop loving husband. joliene, I don't think it would transfer to a crock pot well because glaze doesn't work so well in a crock pot. But the meal took me less than a half hour to make. So that part was good."
"Very tasty..after returning the chops to the sauce I cooked for the appropriate time, but then removed the chops allowing the sauce to reduce again"
"I didnt have thyme so I used Italian mix and it came out great - my whole family LOVED it - will make again and again for sue!!"
"Very easy and the pork chops stay moist and succulent."
"Could this be done in the crock pot?"
"This is a supurb main course."
"I made this recipe in a hurry so it wasn't as tender as i hoped. However, it was still really delicious! I made some changes though, maple syrup was way too expensive for just one use, i used molasses instead (which was half the price) with some brown sugar. Also, i excluded the brewed coffee, i didn't feel like brewing coffee.Next time i will make enough sauce to pour over it once it's all done! the sauce was absolutely delicious!!"
"The sauce was wonderful and the perfect balance of sweet and tangy. I wanted to make sure the chops were tender so after following the recipe I put the in a pan with the sauce along with some carrots and diced onion with foil covering and let them hang out at 350 for a couple hours. So tasty!"
