      Two thumbs up all the way on this recipe. Very tasty & interesting flavour in the sauce. I added gravy ingredients to the final sauce and used on the mashed potatoes we had with the chops. Didn't change ingredients, however, I didn't have cumin seeds so I used cumin powder & it worked fine.

      I am not giving this recipe any stars because I omitted 2 of the main ingredients. I omitted the cumin and jalpeno chiles. I made the rest of the recipe though. The sauce that the recipe makes is really good! That in itself deserves 4-5 stars. I spooned some of it over my baked potato. I was wishing there was more sauce. :) Next time I make this, I will double the sauce ingredients so that it will make more. SInce I did not add the cumin and jalapenos to the recipe I cannot fairly rate the overall recipe. It might throw other chefs off if I do give it stars.

      Bring on the cumin seeds!! wow! loved this!! Update 1-24-09 made again and used poblano peppers instead of jalapenos for kids. BUT kids didn't like the cumin (they ARE picky), so next time i may just not put cumin seeds on theirs but still use for the adults! Added more garlic and butter when making more sauce.
