Sweet and Tangy Asian Pork Chops
I have always enjoyed Asian food, and when I had pork chops, I put this recipe together to create my own take on Asian pork chops. The sauce is sweet and tangy and the meat is moist and tender. —Betty Kercheval, Bellevue, Washington

I thought the sauce was a little on the salty side, but that didn't phase my family. The pork was falling apart tender and I will definitely be preparing this meal again!
