MY REVIEW
Reviewed Dec. 14, 2014

"This recipe is easy to make with very good taste. We added celery, salt and pepper and served it over mashed potatoes. We'll make this again."

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Apr. 14, 2014

"These were not very well liked in my house. I didn't NOT like them, but I probably won't make it again."

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Jun. 21, 2013

"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."

MY REVIEW
