Reviews for Tender Sweet 'n' Sour Pork Chops
"Will definitely make again, pork was moist and gravy was very flavorful."
"Very good, we really liked the sauce."
"Tonight's dinner were these! Absolutely delish ~ definitey a keeper. Used 2 pork xchops only, but kept sauce ingredients same. Will let sauce cook a bit longer next time so it gets a bit thicker. Finger and plate lickin' good!!"
"This was excellent and I will absolutely be making it again. There are only two of us, so I (obviously) only used 2 pork chops. I kept the sauce ingredients the same though and prepared Arborio rice as I was out of wild rice. I served with steamed broccoli and a Rosso Coppola which is a blended wine. It was an excellent pairing. And to be able to bring in such an impressive meal in under thirty minutes (and economically as well!) puts this way up on the list of make-again! Thanks so much for submitting this!"
"This rated very well with me, my husband & my 6 year old daughter! I will be making this again!"
"The first time I made these my 7 yr old told me they were so good she almost passed out! It's now a regular recipe at our house."
"This was healthy, quick and tasty. I will definitely be making this again."
"I've made the recipe several times, it has become a family favorite of ours as well. Sometimes I thicken the sauce a bit, and we like to have extra sauce for the rice I serve with it. Just delicious!"
"The sauce is great but the chops were very tough. But I seem to always have this problem with boneless pork chops. Is there some trick to cooking these? If I made this again I would use bone in pork chops."
"Very tasty and easy to make."
