Wow. I loved these pork chops a lot more than I thought I would. Something about the flavor combinations made this a winner. The sauce was tangy and really worked well with the pork chops, lemon and garlic. I cooked my chops in a cast iron pan and for a few minutes longer on each side (due to the thickness). Thank you!

These chops were a winner in this house. I made the sauce with the wine option and will be making it again and again. Next time I might add a bit of broth to thin the sauce just a tad. Made for Culinary Quest 2014

I made this with red wine and the only change I made was to add a tiny bit of water because we like a thin sauce. The red currant sauce his wonderful with the pork chops.
