5 stars! I prepared with ease last night and had for lunch today and it was just as good leftover. I served with rice and english peas. I followed the suggestion of adding water and flour for more gravy. I will make this again and again. It smells heavenly too.

I loved this recipe!! I did add one tablespoon of brown sugar to the onions (also added a few mushrooms). Instead of adding water, I used a little chicken broth. The porkchops were fork tender. I served this with garlic mashed potatoes and creamed corn. Delicious!! I will definitely make this again.

This was very good, and very easy! The chops were fork tender. I made the gravy which was tasty too. Next time I will be adding some salt. Thanks!
