I was worried after reading the reviews that it would come out dry so I added a little bit of chicken broth to the chops before I put them in the oven. And after adding marsala wine and finishing I made a gravy with the sauce. It came out good. I will be making it again :)

I used thin pork chops with bones and made the recipe in an electric skillet instead of the oven. I browned the chops at 450 degrees in butter & olive oil (I believe butter gives a better flavor to the sauce than plain olive oil). I only cooked them for another 15 minutes after they were browned and I lowered the temperature to 250 degrees. I served them with garlic mashed potatos. My family absolutely loved them!

I agree with the first reviewer! This did not work AT ALL. The meat ended up like overcooked stew meat - it was stringy and chewy. With so many pork recipes on this site I suggest you just pass this one up.

This came out great. I used wheat flour, garlic salt and pepper. Used fresh basil and about 1t. lemon juice. I didn't put them in the oven. Browned them on the stove and then added the chopped fresh basil on top of every chop. Put in the wine, lemon juice and a tiny bit of water so they wouldn't dry. This came out delicious.

I love this recipe! For our anniversary last year I wanted to make something special. I spent hours going through recipes to find that "perfect recipe". This is it! I used a pork tenderloin because I love it and I had some fresh mushrooms that I threw in when I added the marsala because I needed to use them up (and we love mushrooms). It was perfect! I have made this many times at the request of my family - they love it. My mother-in-law liked it so much she asked ME for the recipe! You've got to try it!

I've made this a few times. It's becoming part of our standard dinner menu. I find that if I cover the pork chops before baking and leave covered after adding the Marsala wine the chops come out so tender we don't even use a knife.
