Very good, we really liked the sauce.

MY REVIEW

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!!

MY REVIEW

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!
