"The meat was so tender, it fell right off the bone. I omitted the mushrooms,(not a big fan). I substituted green pepper for red and added chopped celery. Was delicious. Served over Spanish rice."

"I was really excited to make this recipe because I like all the ingredients, but, it was really bland. I did make my own mushrooms, but, that should have added flavor and it didn't do enough."

"I just got this receipe in my email today and was actually already planning pork chops for dinner. I decided to try it and was excited that all of the ingredients were items that I have on hand. The whole family enjoyed it and our 7 year old stated that he preferred these over any other pork chop because they were so moist. Served it with the white rice as suggested and it made a great meal."
