Weeknight Pork Chops, sent in by Oceanside, California cook Cheryl Maher, make a speedy but simply scrumptious meal. While the chops sizzle on the stovetop, Cheryl mixes and microwaves mustard, vinegar and strawberry jam into a colorful sauce that she drizzles over her “sweet and yummy” entree.

"This is easy and delicious. Strawberry jam and pork sounded iffy but decided to give it a try and was more than pleasantly surprised. It is a very tasty dish. Will be making it often."
