Delicious and easy weeknight supper! I made 3 chops but used the same amount of ingredients for the marinade and sauce ... I wasn't sure which wine to use, so I just used a red, and I didn't have sweet and sour sauce so I used 3 tbsp. 100% fruit apricot preserves + 1 tbsp. cider vinegar. Since my chops were about 3/8" thick, I cooked them a little longer (and I think they marinated a little longer, too), and they were tender and juicy with a wonderful flavor. I made them for my fiance; he really, really liked them (and even though I don't really eat meat, I tried a little piece for the sake of being able to do the review). It's going to be a very popular dish around our house ... easy for me and delicious for him! Thanks for posting this, Jason!

Very simple and quick! I put the rice in the rice cooker, stir fried broccoli and prepared the chops all in less than 1/2 hour. Great for a week night meal. Thanks Animate Me :)
