  1. This was very easy to make. I used diet coke instead or normal coke (as I had a can in the fridge and I don't drink diet) and also added some sliced mushrooms. I cooked it uncovered for the entire time to try and thicken the sauce but still ended up adding a little cornflour at the end. It had a nice flavour but just a little too rich for us.
  2. They came out very tender and I liked the sauce alot, but my family wasn't as crazy about them as I was. I made them in a 8x11 pan and cooked for an hour before I covered for the last half hour. The chops were very tender and not dry at all when I used the smaller pan. Clean up can be a little sticky
  3. Nice flavours in this dish, I checked the chops a half an hour before the 2nd hour of cooking, glad I did as they were starting to dry out. Will make again.
