Glazed Chops Recipe

WHEN I saw this recipe in the newspaper years ago, I thought it sounded so good, I immediately went out and bought all the ingredients. Not only was it easy, the kids even raved about it. Almost everyone who has tasted it asks for the recipe. --Lisa Polson, San Rafael, California
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 20 min. Bake: 45 min. YIELD:6 servings


  • 6 bone-in pork loin chops (8 ounces each)

  • 1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon chili powder
  • 1/8 teaspoon pepper

"I altered the recipe quite a bit, and it was very tasty. I used a small shallot & 2 cloves garlic because I didn't have onions on hand, and rather than bake the chops, I cooked the shallots in the pan juices after browning the chops, then returned the chops to the pan along with the sauce (I omitted the water and doubled the vinegar & Worcestershire), covered the pan and simmered until cooked. Then I thickened the sauce after removing the chops. It got rave reviews from the family."

"I made this tonight and I was just not impressed with it. I don't know if it's that you're suppose to use real maple syrup and I just had pancake maple syrup but it tasted weird."

"Followed directions. Chops are as dry as a bone. Will put them in crockpot tomorrow for dinner. Hopefully they will be more tender."

"I stopped making pork chops for years because I thought they didn't have any flavor. No matter what I did, they were tasteless. I'll start using this recipe from now on. They were delicious!"
