      This is so good!! The sauce is great. I used regular onions because I don't keep shallots in the house, but everything else I had, and the recipe does not need to be altered in any way to make it better. It's spot on!

      This could easily become our favorite way to do pork chops. Great flavor and easy to do. Loved the sauce. Made for Fall 2012 PAC game.

      These were very good! The only change I made was to use bone-in chops since that is what I had. They have a great appley flavor but is not too overpowering and they cook up fast. Made for Spring PAC 2011.
