Recipe by Toby Jermain
I have been making and relishing this dish for at least 25 years, probably longer. I have no idea where I originally got it.

These chops are delicious, moist and really easy to make. I made one substitution as I used dill weed instead of seed. I did use the wine and the sherry and half sweet half hot paprika. The sauce is so very flavorful served over buttered noodles. The sauce seemed very thick to me so I did thin it with a little water, but other than that it was perfect, every bit devoured by the family. Thanks for sharing Toby!
