    This is the best recipe for pork chops I've found! The chops stay flavorful and tender, and I like the fact that there are no cream soups involved. I served it with sides of buttered pasta and Italian-style vegetables, and we licked the platter clean. As a matter of personal preference, I used more garlic, and added one chopped bell pepper to the onion and mushroom mix and it came out very well. I also did not have any tomato sauce, so I used a partially drained 14.5 oz. can of diced tomatoes and this worked fine, too. For anyone who does not wish to cook with wine, I substituted beef broth for the wine and it was still quite flavorful. This is an A+ recipe! Thanks for sharing it, Allana!  -  04 Jan 2003  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    Easy and great tasting. Makes a little too much sauce, and was sorry to have to drain most of it.  -  15 Dec 2001  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    This recipe is great! I've made this dish twice now and I've made a few variations- I used a can of diced tomatos instead of the tomato sauce and added roasted red peppers. Wonderful and delicious. Thanks for the wonderful recipe!  -  10 Apr 2002  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
