Sweet ‘n’ Tangy Pork Chops

Total Time

Prep/Total Time: 25 min.


4 servings

Even our 2-year old will eat this dish. The tender chops covered in a flavorful sauce are quick to fix. I like to serve them on a bed of no-yolk noodles. -Michelle Bishop of Peru, Indiana

    Very good! I usually leave out the diced peppers and it's still super yummy!

    I have to triple this recipe for my family of 5 because they keep coming back for more!

    I enjoyed this; I thought the sauce had a good flavor. I cooked the diced peppers with the sauce so they would be soft.

    Tasty, but, mine turned out a bit dry and I only simmered mine for about 6 minutes. My daughter thought it tasted like teriyaki. The sauce was too thick (my mistake, I used a tablespoon of cornstarch instead of what the recipe called for).I will certainly try this again, but I will cut down the cook time and use the listed amount of cornstarch and water.
