I have been making this for years and have never had any negetive feedback.I roll my chops in flour and brown them before baking,not only does this make a much jucier chop,it also helps to thicken the sauce.

The flavor was good, but I give it three stars because 1 hour is too long to cook most pork chops and they gave off a lot of liquid and made the good tasting sauce too thin and runny. I might try searing the porkchops first and browning them before baking them with the sauce next time.

This recipe was great. I modified it a little, but it turned out amazingly well. I rubbed the pork chops with garlic powder, onion powder and pepper then browned them. I also added 1 teaspoon lemon juice and 1 teaspoon corn starch to the ketchup mixture. I put the pork chops in the oven for 30 minutes at 375 degrees. They were moist and the sauce turned out to be the perfect thickness.

This is pretty tasty and very easy to make with just a few readily available items! I also recommend covering chops in flour and some seasonings (salt pepper garlic powder..whatever you like) and browning then putting in oven. Also when you are mixing the ketchup/soda mixture..let it sit in the bowl after mixing for a few minutes, it thickens and makes a thicker overall sauce when cooked.

This recipe was absolutely wonderful! I was skeptical b/c of the simplistic ingredients but it was wonderful. I did use a few of the suggestions from other reviewers. I floured and fried up the chops before putting them in the sauce to thicken the sauce, it also reduced the cooking time to about 40 minutes. I also used 1/2 ketchup and 1/2 barbecue sauce. I added onions and 2 cloves of garlic minced up. This was great, my husband and kid's loved it! I will definitely be making this soon:) Thanks for such a great recipe!

I can't believe this was so good! I would normally have passed this up, but after reading the reviews, I just had to try it. I used 3 tablespoons of brown sugar and equal amounts of the Coke and ketchup (a little more than a cup)and added a few slices of onion on top of the chops. I took the chops out at the end and thickened the sauce with some cornstarch and water. It was not too ketchupy for us and tasted great over rice. This was so quick to throw together and then fix the side dishes while it cooked. How simple! Thanks for sharing this recipe - I will definitely make it again...and again..

Don't worry about those reviews who said this wasn't good. It was awsome. I cooked this for my hubby his friend and myself and we all thought it was great. I spiced it up with garlic powder, seasoning salt, pepper, lemon juice (will ommit next time), a dash of tabasco and 2 tbsp of bbq sauce. I served it up with roasted potatoes (put in the oven at the same time and ready at the same time) and peas and corn. I'll definately make this again. I marinated mine for 2 hours first, not sure if it made a difference or not. TRY THIS

I covered my baking pan, and as a consequence had a lot of sauce, that was very thin. Will definately make this again, but will bake without a cover to thicken the sauce up. Hubby says this is actually a seven star recipe. I did add sliced onions and some garlic powder.
