I liked this recipe a lot! It's one of my favorites. I don't use kohlrabi but use chopped onions and celery instead. yum!

Very bland and kind of dry. Great for picky kids, however. Bad for gormet husbands. Tisk, tisk. Could be improved, I think by thickening sauce. Perhaps a white sauce or soup (ie. mushroom--very midwestern!) instead of just milk.

I followed this recipe to a T despite the reviews about blandness. Although I love curries and other spicy foods sometimes something subtle is great. This was one of those which had enough natural flavours to make it great. I will definitely make it again. It was the dish for Kohlabri!

I followed the recipe exactly, and it was rather bland. The veggies were the best part. I think with some tweaking it could be better. I think adding some thyme and basil to the pork chops when I brown them will help perk them up, and I'll use cream of something soup with the milk. I'd also like to try adding garlic and onions. Not a bad base recipe, I'll try it with modifications next time.

This was very good. I'd never had kohlrabi before and fully intend to use it again. I added a little spice to it before putting it in the oven and it turned out superb. The chops fell apart easily and the veggie blend (I added celery) was a great compliment.

Not a lot of flavor. Will use more seasonings next time but we still enjoyed it.

I personally love this recipe. I serve it with garlic bread and cream pie. Kids love porkchops. So if you don't like kohlrobi and sweet onions.

I was looking for something to do with the Kholrabi I grew (we usually eat it raw). This recipe was excellent, the flavors of the ingredients just meld together for a great taste. And I love putting together a meal in one dish and baking. I'll grow mor kholrabi this year!
