We had this last night & really liked it. I had a red pepper on hand & used that. It made the dish more sweet than savory. It is in the keep pile for pork chops.

I was looking for a pork chop recipe this morning and cam across this one. I had all the ingredients. It takes a little time, but absolutely worth it. The sauce was so good I even put it on my mashed potatoes. YUMMY!
