I'd used 18 dried apricots and then after chops simmered, I'd made the fruit sauce as recipe directed and added 6 pitted cooked prunes to the chops and apricots. I'd never made this dish before. I sampled the dish and I found it to be rated as very good-#4!

I have made this recipe for years,the whole family likes it. I usually use boneless pork chops instead of the bone-in kind. It is easy enough for a week night meal yet special enough for company. Don't let the curry scare you off, it is subtle and delicious.

I've made this recipe many times. I love it! And it smells so good while cooking, too. It's a keeper for me.
