MY REVIEW
Reviewed Jun. 6, 2013

I was not a big fan of these pork chops. I thought the combination of spices had a lot of heat behind them, but overall, the flavor was lacking for me. However, I do appreciate how fast and easy this recipe was to put together!!!! Prepared the chops earlier in the day, went to a baseball game, came home, threw them on the grill, very simple dinner!!!

This was such a nice recipe. It was wonderful. Just nice flavors, I will make this again. I am tired of breaded fried pork chops. Thank-You Very Much!
