Really good. I added a little garlic and soy sauce to the sauce.

These had an interesting flavor that I found very appealing. I will be making these again.

Pork chops were tender and flover was good and different because of the spices. I poured the juice on the rice and it was too sweet and the flavor was fair but not yummy.

This recipe is one of our favorites. I made it for our dinner guest and the response was, "It taste like Christmas!"I usually save this recipe if I want to impress people with my cooking!

These were good and I would make them again, but they just weren't as flavorful as I was expecting them to be.

I actually made a BBQ sauce from the sauce ingredients and thickened with cornstarch and BBQ the chops in it. It was really good and the BBQ was good on the rice, which I made jasmine rice instead of white. Very good.

Really good. I suggest increasing the spice rub, because I don't feel like it is enough for 4 good sized chops. But very good.

I made this for my family of five last night and they all loved it! It was so easy to make. What was great is I didn't have to turn on the oven. I made extra sause to be able to put more over the rice.
