Good Pork Chops!! revised from Cooking light.

Top Review by Tunnia

This dish is attractive and delicious. It took me less than 30 minutes from start to finish but looked and tasted like I had spent hours on it. It was perfect for a busy weeknight dinner, but I think it would be equally perfect for an elegant dinner party. I added some garlic powder to the chops before browning and omitted the rosemary because I didn't feel like going out in the cold to pick a sprig. Other than that, I followed the directions as written. I was a bit concerned as I was making it that it would be too sweet but I it wasn't. It was fantastic!
