    This was OK. I may not make it again simply because there are a lot of pork chop recipes that I like better.

    We didn't like this! And was very disappointed as it sounds good. The meat was tough and the flavor strange. I won't be making it again.

    Did I do something wrong? My family did not like this at all. We had to throw it out. So disappointing.

    Dinner turned out GREAT tonight! The pork chops were flavorful and moist. My husband said it was the best pork chop he's ever had.
