Recipe Comments & Reviews

I'm a beginner cook, and I found this recipe easy and delicious. The pork chops turned out very moist and flavorful.
Prepared pork chops for dinner tonight using this recipe-success at our house.Chops were delicious--husband and Dad loved them. Sweet potatoes were side dish and were a great dish to serve with the pork chops. I will probably try adding the apples as suggested by Judy when I prepare these for dinner again.
This recipe is a must have!! I tweaked it a little bit using 6 boneless pork chops and only 3 tablespoons of butter and also adding mushrooms. I have shared it with all my friends. A good side dish is twice baked potatoes. My husband loved it!
So delicious. I thought I was burning it at first but the onions were just browning- It is something I make on a regular basis.
A sure fire way to make this recipe a "5" is to add 2 peeled, diced tart apples when carmalizing the onions, and 1 stick cinnamon. Smells and tastes like the holidays!! Do it for your bone-in pork roast, too......
