Loved this recipe, & pretty much followed it right on down, although I did cut it in half for the 2 of us! However, I gotta ask ~ Where are the pork chops, 'cause they aren't on the list of ingredients & so wouldn't be included in the Nutritional Facts? Whatever is said & done there, we did have 3 very satisfying chops ~ Your glaze is very, very nice! [Made & reviewed for one of my adoptees in this fall's round of Pick A Chef]
