Reviews for Tomato-Topped Italian Pork Chops

These were not very well liked in my house. I didn't NOT like them, but I probably won't make it again.
I made these last night and they were delicious! I did make a few changes. I used regular bone in chops (because that's what I had on hand), I used balsamic vinegar (didn't have vinaigrette), added a tsp of salt and ground pepper to taste. Next time, I will add 1/4 c of diced celery. I also suggest adding the carrots about an hour before the chops are done so they don't turn too soft. I prefer mine with a little more texture. It is a great dish and goes very well over rice.
This recipe was so good and looked so appetizing, my husband served it as a special in our restaurant and it was a hit!
