      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

      This was a very quick, very east, very tasty dish. So many quick porkchop recipes don't really have much flavor. This one pleased my meat and potato husband and my 2 year old. We had noodles, cauliflower, and fresh bread with it. A great meal.

      Nice and easy for a weeknight supper. Good flavour. The sauce didn't really get "syrupy" for me -- I don't know whether that's because I didn't cook it long enough. I'll be keeping this recipe for when I want a meal on the table in under 30 minutes.
