"I give this rating based on overall and as it is written. As far as being easy and no-fuss, I'd give it a 5. Tastes very good, but not excellent, but will definitely keep this recipe because of the ease. First time I made it, cooking it for 7 hours was way too long. Why does the recipe call for BONE-IN meat?? We served it over rice and we had to chew very slowly, finding all sorts of pieces of bones! I decided the recipe was a good base so the second time I made it, I used thin, boneless chops. They were cooked in 5 hours. I also add a little salt and pepper. You could easily add some garlic, Italian seasoning."

"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."

"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."
