Definitely a keeper! I doubled the recipe for our family and since I only had sweet peppers, I didn't use the green. This will be a staple in my pork chop recipe rotation!

I was not particularly impressed with this dish. In my opinion it could have used a touch of sugar/Splenda. I added a tablespoon of each cornstarch and water because it was too thin, watery actually. Tastes like a creole sauce. Thanks for the recipe. I should have cooked it 6 minutes instead of 8 though.

The only difference I made was to do it in the oven. It turned out very good.

Good combination of ingredients, all items worked very well together. Tasted great and took only 30 minutes to prepare.
