Glazed Pork Chops

When I was a new mom, I needed tasty, healthy meals I could whip up fast. These juicy chops won me over. Since this is a one-pan dish, cleanup is a breeze, too. —Kristin Tanis, Hatfield, Pennsylvania

    Turned out good, but the sauce was a little to sweet for me.

    My family loves these chops. The only change I make is to double the sauce ingredients. Very tender. And, they're delicious with the Italian Noodles recipe that's on the same page in this issue of Quick Cooking!

    Y husband like it, but I thought it was to tart like a sweet and sour..made it just as the recipe called with a tablespoon of honey.

    From the sight and smell to the taste, I loved everything about this dish! It has wonderful flavor with an Asian flair, and was very simple to make. My husband also gave it two thumbs up so I know it's a keeper for our family's menu rotation.I added almost a teaspoon of honey to temper the savory/acidic flavors of the sauce. I might use a little more next time. This sauce is so good, I would even use it for chicken or beef.

    I loved this recipe! It was so easy to make. I used low sodium soy sauce since it is the only kind I buy. The only thing I would change is I would double the glaze since it is so so delicious everyone wanted more. Thank you!

    Tangy, but not overpoweringly so; quick and easy, great for a busy day; low on calories too!

    Reminiscent of sauerbraten. We also added onions and used part teriyaki sauce. The gravy was 'delish. Will serve over potato dumplings next time. Note: may need to add a little water if gravy gets too thick, but the onion pieces and little browned bits from the bottom of the pan really make it work.

    Really good. Didn't make any changes. Quick & easy. Will make again & again.
