The chops were good. The sauce was watery though and I didn't even add the hot water as called for in the recipe. I didn't drain the tomatoes, but it didn't say to either. Maybe next time I should or maybe simmer it longer?
Robust flavor. A definite keeper.
had to add some garlic powder to enhance for my taste- seems that the wine flavor was to strong. but DH liked it a lot.
