Top Review by Bergy

Great flavor, juicy chop. I cut the recipe in half and did not get the splenda quite right so I added an ounce of Madiera and perfect, got a nice stick to the chop glaze. I served the chope with Tomatoe Mushroon green beans, plain steamed cauliflower and 4 cheese ravioli (only 5 ravioli) Excellent dinner Dorothy thanks! Added comments - made these again loved them as much as the first time - this time Iseved them with Braised Fennel, steamed carrots & boil ed Potatoes I mashed the potatoes with my fork and poured the sauce from the chops over them The pictue does not do them justice Thanks again Derf
