This is a delicious recipe. I used smoked thicker sliced Canadian bacon because the boneless chops were not available at our market. I used fresh farmer's cheese pierogi from a local Polish market, and I used some homemade balsamic glaze that I had in the fridge. The glaze really made the meat and pierogi pop with flavor. I will definitely put this recipe on my keeper list.

I made this dish today! I couldn't find smoked pork chops, so I used 2 tsp. of Sweet and Smokey seasoning rub. I had frozen green beans, so I used those. The amounts of butter and olive oil I'd increased and the pierogies I used were 13-oz.. This dish was very tasty.

I prepared this dinner tonight and it went together quickly. We had never eaten pierogies so this was a new treat for us Texans. Smoked pork chops is a favorite as are green beans so the overall dinner was delicious. I highly recommend this recipe. Volunteer Field Editor
