    It was okay, I probably wouldn't make this again though. My family didn't really care for it but maybe yours will....

    My brother and I made this a few weeks ago. It turned out really well. He's a big cheese lover, so we added some shredded cheddar on top of the pork chops the last few minutes of cooking.The cooking time will vary with the thickness and type of pork chop you use.
