    We combined the sauce ingredients in double the quantities and poured it over the pork chops before cooking them on low in the slow cooker. They came out simple and tasty. Our guests complimented the sauce and used it on the quinoa and steamed vegetables we served.

    Very tasty. Double the sauce. Especially if your chops are thick.

    I had high hopes for the sauce after reading the reviews, but it was just ok for me. A little sweet with a bit of heat, but mostly tasteless. Chops were ok as well.

    Quick, easy and delicious!. Word to the wise: triple the sauce recipe. Have used with pork, and chicken to serve as pork chops, chicken as well as leftovers for stir fry with rice and meats over salad with oriental noodles and mandarin oranges.

    Really soft and tender. The sauce was also very tasty. I will definitely be making these chops again!

    Good recipe. I was a little disappointed in the small amount of sauce. A hit with my husband. Convenient in that I had on hand all the ingredients.
