This recipe was just okay. Not horrible, not amazing. It felt a little bland, like it needed a nice good sauce to go on top of it. I told my husband to use soy sauce and worscheshire to replace the olive oil in searing the pork chop but he trusted rachael ray. I think that would have greatly improved the flavor.
