This is by far the best Creole Pork Chop recipe I have tried. My family isn't so fond of bay leaves so I leave that out and the flavor is amazing.

VERY nice. Bright flavor and very tender meat. Followed the recipe as written and found the dish a little too salty for us and think that we'd start with 3/4 teaspoon of salt to start with and add more later as necessary. We served it with rice, but it would be equally nice with pasta. We'll be making this again
