I was quite impressed; I had large boneless pork loin chops. I only had half of a small lemon (missing some of its zest from a previous recipe, and the other half of the lemon, also mostly zested from another recipe was also squeezed of its juice.) Yeah I know it's a bit complicated lol, but I sliced what I had left anyway, added in a little extra fresh juice leftover from a previous recipe plus 2 TBSP of bottled lemon juice. All I had was a Walla Walla sweet onion, but I used less than half and should have used more. Most of my onions disintegrated and I kept getting the lemon pieces confused with the onions (their texture and color were the same after cooking together and even the taste wasn't completely differentiated). I didn't think the onions had a funny taste at all, except the part about not being able to tell them apart from the lemon pieces, and those lemon pieces weren't bad to eat either. I had 2 large chops, and the exact amts indicated for the brown sugar and ketchup (I used dark brown). My bf thought this was pretty good, but he hates ketchup and he wanted to know what the "red stuff" was after he'd eaten it. He thought maybe he'd rather have barbecue sauce on this instead. The chops were fall-apart tender, cooked on low for 6 hrs and left the crockpot on warm setting, as we weren't quite hungry by the time this was done. I served this with recipe #16596. Though the lemon was pungent when I checked the cooking halfway through, and I worried that I'd used too much, tne end product was delicious. Thanks Theresa/ Thunderbird. :)
Easy to make. I tripled the recipe b/c of large family and it still turned out great. I layered the boneless chops in my crock pot.I didn't have any lemons so I just used lemon juice. I also chopped the onions instead of slicing them.I thought the ketchup was a little weird, but the flavors blended nicely.
