Great recipe!! I botched it the first time, but I'm so glad I tried it again. Made exactly as stated, but I found my chops cooked in about 35-40 minutes (The first time they burned after 45 minutes). Thanks for posting!!! I will be making this again soon...

very good pork chops, love the basil and tomato, I scaled it down for two and it turned out just fine. I did cut the cornstarch in half, it seemed like a lot, the sauce turned out just right for our tastes. Thanks for sharing a good one!!

FANTASTIC! This recipe had everyone licking their plates, literally! I used freshly diced tomatoes and 1/4 cup heavy cream instead of water. My southern lovin' husband said this is a keeper. Thanks so much!
