Made this for dinner tonight! Husband said this is a keeper. Make this as much as you want. I followed the recipe but added some sliced onion and a sliced red pepper and some minced garlic. Served it on a bed of rice.

I made the recipe as printed except for using regular soy sauce since I was out of reduced sodium. For me, the key was making sure that the pork chops were browned until there was a nice seared crispness on the outside. I used boneless center cut pork chops and trimmed excess fat to keep it healthier. Loved the fact that these ingredients are what most people have on hand and that it's a quick meal that tastes like you worked hard to put a hearty meal on the table. I was worried that they would not taste as sweet and sour as we liked but these pork chops were delicious. A baked potato and green salad made for a healthy, tasty meal! This recipe is a keeper for us!

Tonight's dinner were these! Absolutely delish ~ definitey a keeper. Used 2 pork xchops only, but kept sauce ingredients same. Will let sauce cook a bit longer next time so it gets a bit thicker. Finger and plate lickin' good!!

This was excellent and I will absolutely be making it again. There are only two of us, so I (obviously) only used 2 pork chops. I kept the sauce ingredients the same though and prepared Arborio rice as I was out of wild rice. I served with steamed broccoli and a Rosso Coppola which is a blended wine. It was an excellent pairing. And to be able to bring in such an impressive meal in under thirty minutes (and economically as well!) puts this way up on the list of make-again! Thanks so much for submitting this!
