My husband and I both enjoyed this dish. We thought it was very flavorful and the porkchops turned out very moist and tender. I did add just a little creole seasoning, and since I was out of canned tomatos and tomato sauce, I just used one can of undrained diced tomatoes and it turned out very well. I will definitely be making this again.
