These tangy grilled chops are all the talk at barbecues and tailgates. You gotta have them with the sweet and sour glaze. —Jacqueline Correa, Landing, New Jersey

"I made these last night for dinner. I followed the recipe exactly with no changes. I did broil them and they did take longer than the recipe said to get the internal temp to 145*. I served with basmati rice and scalloped spinach. Will definitely make again. This glaze will be good on chicken thighs also!"

"A great combination of sweet and heat! I used about 1/2 a teaspoon of powdered ginger and a little bit of chopped candied ginger in place of the fresh gingerroot. The candied ginger bits gave an extra bit of sweetness to the dish and gave a little relief to the exceptionally spicy jalepeno that came from my garden! Other changes I made were using a little more than 1/3 cup of marmalade and boneless pork chops in place of bone-in.

My husband really liked this dish which is saying something for a guy who generally dislikes sweet and savory/spicy! I'll be adding this to our list of favorite ways to make pork chops!"

"I really liked the flavor of the glaze, but I expected it to have more of punch. It was easy to make and nice way to dress up every day pork chops."

"Very good recipe and easy to make. The only thing I changed was using 1 tbsp of fresh ginger. I cooked them on the BBQ. Served with salad and Forbidden rice (also called black rice)."
