Far to much ketchup in this recipe. I should have folowed my instinct & adjusted the amount as no one at the table would finish eating them.

My husband and I thought it was very good. My picky son and his friend told me the pork chops were good. My son doesn't usually compliment my cooking. I used 8 small pork chops.

This was good. The flavor is very strong. My family all ate it. Next time I will leave off the lemon and just use the juice. Chops were so tender.
