My mother made this for us when we were growing up. The pork chops are very moist and the sauce is fantastic! You can also substitute other fruits for the kiwi--I have tried strawberries with wonderful results.
We absolutely loved this recipe. I agree the chops come out very moist & flavourful. The only small change I made was increase the cornstarch to make the sauce abit thicker. We used kiwi but I like the idea of trying different fruits like strawberries, mango would probably work too. Thanks so much for sharing your recipe.
