Spiced Pork Chops

Being a widow who likes to cook big meals, I frequently invite family and friends for dinner. On busy days, I rely on this easy recipe, which I got from a dear friend. It's hearty and satisfying and always gets raves. -Joan MacKinnon, Brooklyn, Nova Scotia

    The coating on the meat was good. But the sauce was well...ketchup with a bit of brown sugar. I could have done the same thing with a bottle of BBQ sauce and had better flavor in the sauce. I will use the spice coating again, and bake the chops, but the rest, no thank you.

    Very good! Like others mentioned, there was a little too much flour in comparison to the other spices. Next time I'll up the spices!

    Yummy recipe. Ended up being a bit overdone even after taking them out 5 minutes early...that's the only reason I give 4 stars. But overall the recipe was good and I would definitely make it again.

    Loved these chops......lots of yummy sauce to put over the chops, potatoes, etc. Easy to prepare. I made them in a cast iron skillet so it easily went from stove top to oven in one pan. Less mess to clean up later is a bonus in my books!
