I've also made this with chicken and it turns out great. Love the sweet/sour taste. Catalina dressing is a version of french dressing you put on a lettuce salad. I've also used Russian dressing. These are tomato (ketchup) based (orange/red in color)...I think the catalina has a little more of a "bite" to it than the french. I found a recipe for catalina dressing so you have some idea what the ingredients are or perhaps if you cannot find it to purchase, you can make some. Catalina Dressing: 1 cup sugar, 2 teasoon salt, dash paprika, 1/2 teaspoon chili powder, 1/2 teaspoon celery seed, 1/2 teaspoon dry mustard, grated onion to taste, 1/2 cup white vinegar, 2/3 cup ketchup, 1 cup vegetable oil. Put all ingredients into a blender and mix. Store in a jar in refrigerator. I wish this site had a message board area where we could ask questions about ingredients or a process in a recipe we don't understand.



These were delicious. My only comment is that the sauce mixture made an awful lot. I would probably half all the ingredients for it.

Wonderful! The sauce can accomodate up to 6 pork chops nicely. We love this recipe. Such a nice change from the usual pork chop dish. We love this over a bed of white rice. If you can't find Catalina dressing, use Russian, it is close, just not quite as spicy. I also seem to have trouble finding Apricot Jam so I substitute preserves and it works just fine. I season the pork chops in salt, pepper and garlic powder prior to browning. You can add a splash of soy sauce to this if you want to. This has a nice sweet and sour taste to it, my mouth is watering just writing this!
