Reviews for Zesty Pork Chops
"This is a good recipe and it is a good way to fire up your Metabolism. Make your own sauce with Jalapenos, lemon, and whatever you want."
"I would make this recipe again, but I listened to all of the people before.... I made my own puree if you will to put on the pork.. I took a couple of tablespoons of jalapeno and put them in my food processor with tons of minced garlic. combined it with the olives and green onions. then poured over chops and mushrooms"
"This was good with a little amped up volume! I tried some jalapeno with chix broth and white wine for a sauce."
"I added a couple minced garlic cloves which made a difference in adding to flavor but we are garlic lovers."
"Very tasty and healthy especially for diabetics and the rest of us too. I used Italian Seasoning and Basil and did add more than 1/4 teaspoon."
"Although it is healthy, not too zesty. Needs more onion, or maybe not green, and definitely more spices than 1/4 tsp. Hubby thought it was tasteless. Would make again but increase flavorings."
"There were very good!! I only made it for two."
"Sounds so good."
