For years, this has been one of my husband's favorite recipes. When we moved last year, I lost my boxes with my entire recipe collection, books and all. I was so glad to find the recipe here%u2014I won't ever lose it again!! I made this tonight for the first time in years and it's just as good as we remember. I usually serve this over eggs noodles. Oh, and I always double the sauce!!
I made the full recipe, except that I did include just 2 good-size chops, but I cut the amount of red pepper flakes back by almost half! Still, we found these saucy chops very satisfying served with a combo of brown rice & peas! [Tagged, made & reviewed for one of my adoptees in the current Pick A Chef]
