Opinions

Potter: This was some amazing pork chops. I had seconds and would have probably had thirds but we ran out of chops. The sauce was delicious though I had my doubts going into it because we didn't marinade them, just mixed it and cooked it per instructions. It turned out wonderful. As most of you probably know I'm a fan of spice so making in this in the future I'll probably throw in a little hot sauce every know and then to give it a bit of a kick (but this addition is definitely not necessary).

Katie: The pork chops were good. They were a decent cut and stayed tender. The sauce for the chops was delicious and I don't think I would change a thing for the sweet and tangy flavor it provided based on the original recipe.
