Wow! The gravy this makes is soooo excellent over spaetzle (german noodles). I pounded my chops to 1/4" thickness prior to browning and followed the rest of the directions to a "T". The result was a very tasty, very moist chop with plenty of gravy. Thanks for sharing!!

I perpared this recipe for my Grandmother (Ma) and she raved and raved and raved about these pork chops!! I served these tender Pork Chops with Rutabagas, Garlic Mashed Potatoes, Corn on The Cob and Me& Ma's Southern Style Scratch CornBread (Me & Ma's Southern Style Scratch Cornbread). I don't eat pork, however I will prepare pork if requested and while the pork chops were cooking it smelled so darn good I was ALMOST TEMPTED to taste a sample!!! I prepared this recipe as stated with the exception of using 12oz. of Chicken Broth, 4 cloves of Crushed Garlic and 4 mixed Pork Chops (as that was all we had). I too DID NOT half the recipe to accomodate the 4 chops. The pork chops were falling off the bone with lots of perfectly thick, rich gravy!!! Dredging the chops and onions in flour before browning shortens the process of making a paste to add to the juices and I did not have any grease left over at all. The Guinness is what makes these chops so darn tender (as with a few of your other recipes that call for Guinness)! This recipe is a A+ WINNER and a KEEPER!!

I thought this dinner was easy to make (albeit time consuming) and we enjoyed it. I halved the number of pork chops, but used the same amount of sauce as posted for 8. I wished the gravy would have been a little more flavorful, but it was still very good. The gravy was nice and thick and the chops were moist and tender. We followed all directions and ingredients as posted. I am not sure that I loved it enough to take the effort to make again, but it was definitely worth the try. Thanks!
