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!

I'm not really sure why more people have not rated and reviewed your recipe. It is amazing! I've been looking for a way to use up a can of whole berry sauce, and this was it. We left out the honey as the sauce is plenty sweet on its own. Took Oolala's advice on the garlic powder and left out the rosemary completely (we don't care for it much). Seriously delicious. I'm going to be recommending it to a friend tonight! Thanks for an amazing recipe.

Fantastic pork chops! The whole family gave it thumbs up and it was easy to prepare. I used a bit less rosemary and added a bit of thyme and I added some garlic powder to the herb sprinkle mix. My chops were about 1" thick so I gave them extra time and I simmered longer too. Thanks for a winner!
