We didn't care for this dish. At first I followed the recipe except for adding half herbs de Provence to half the oregeno, decreasing the cayenne because DH can't eat overly hot spicy, foods and decreasing the recipe size. It took over and hour and a half of cooking until the chops were tender enough to eat. The flavor of the sauce was rather bland, except for the back up heat from the cayenne and the pepper. Though I cut the amount of milk and water because of reducing the recipe size, I used 1/3 cup of brandy. The sauce had a very unappetizing curdled look to it until I used my immersion blender which made it nice and smooth. After trying the sauce and finding it to be rather bland I added a little dijon mustard and a splash of chardonay, which gave it a some extra flavor. Because of the way the recipe is entered it is difficult to follow; I read it several times and still missed that the flour should have been browned, though I don't know that it would have made much difference over all. Thanks for sharing your recipe even if it wasn't to our taste. Made for ZWT 5.

I began cooking as a kid with my mom. I cook mostly Mexican food, but my best recipes are the ones that I improvise at the last minute! Especially desserts, which I love to cook, but always forget to write down. I'm a stay at home mom of three kids- 2 boys (3 & 5years old) and a 1 year old baby girl. My husband and I have been married for nearly 8 years. I want to take a moment to thank all of you who have made my recipes and even took the time to review and/or photograph them. I appreciate every one of them! <img src="http://i23.photobucket.com/albums/b399/susied214/permanent%20collection/cookbookZWT.jpg" border="0" alt="I am alw"> <img src="http://i27.photobucket.com/albums/c175/emmyduckie/banner2009.jpg" border="0" alt="Photobucket"width=90%> <img src="http://i132.photobucket.com/albums/q23/vseward/Bevy/officialmemberofthebevtaggame.jpg"> <a href="http://www.recipezaar.com/bb/viewtopic.zsp?t=278234"><img src="http://i25.photobucket.com/albums/c99/ruemke/banners/beans-1.jpg"> <img src="http://i250.photobucket.com/albums/gg271/MrsTeny/Permanent%20Collection/PACSpring09Iwasadopted.jpg"> <img src="http://i10.photobucket.com/albums/a132/tgifford/Game%20Room%20Banners/AM%20Banners/IRecommendGame_AssortedChoc-part-1.jpg" border="0" alt="Photobucket"> <img src="http://i21.photobucket.com/albums/b280/carolinamoon21/Ingredients/Other/Elves-appreciationSTICKER.jpg">
