MY REVIEW
Reviewed Jun. 21, 2014

"This was a delicious fast meal. It only takes minutes to cook. I used almond milk instead of half and half but I forgot the red pepper flakes...still delicious. We just returned from the South of France where we bought herbs de Provence so this gave me a chance to use these delicious herbs. Would definitely make again...but would omit the salt...with the soy sauce and the beef boullion it was a bit salty."

"Yum, we really enjoyed this recipe. I did modify a little. I replaced the half and half cream with fat free evaporated milk. I also cooked the pork in 2 teaspoons butter and 1 tablespoon olive oil. I think that this would make a great dinner party dish."

"I used chops as well. Adults enjoyed it, kids didn't. Recipe doesn't suggest to drain drippings from pan after cooking pork but that is definitely something I would do next time."
