"As pork raisers, we've served pork many different ways, and this is our absolute favorite," notes Alice Hermes of Glen Ullin, North Dakota. "One of our daughters went to state competition in 4-H when she entered these tangy chops seasoned with soy sauce, ginger and garlic."

"These were fabulous. I halved the recipie for the maranade, and I did general guessing on the vegetables because I didn't want to chop them up when I would be pulverizing them in the blender later."

"The recipe was very easy to follow and had a great taste. I substitued flour instead of cornstarch so i used 4 tsp flour and it came out great! My husband is very picky and tends to only like meals that his mother made when he was growing up & he loved this!"

"These chops were excellent and tasty! I don't think you need that much marinade for four chops, though. You could easily halve it."
