I was going to give it a 4 but DH said at least a 5. Well 5 is as high as I can go so a 5 it is. The recipe is well written and easy to follow. The chops were fork tender and all was well seasoned. The chops were served on a bed of Classic Saffron Rice with green beans on the side. Made for PAC Spring 2014.
A great & simple recipe. This is a great milk-free & egg-free recipe for those with food allergies. Very good flavor and texture.
