Apple Glazed Pork Chops

Reviewed: Feb. 24, 2005
I gave this a four-star rating instead of a five only because of the modifications I made to the recipe. Based on other reviews that I read, I omitted the onion soup mix. First, I made a seasoning mix of black pepper, garlic powder, seasoning salt and cinnamon. I rubbed this into the bone-in pork chops and seared them in olive oil. While they were browning, I mixed one cup applesauce, 1 tablespoon cinnamon, 2 tablespoons brown sugar, 3 tablespoons margarine and 1 chopped red apple (I didn't have green ones on hand). In a 9x13 pan, I poured 2 tablespoons butter mixed with 2 teaspoons minced garlic. I put the browned pork chops in the pan and poured the apple mix on top. I kept the cooking temp and time the same. These chops came out so juicy and tender, the best I have ever had. My guests were not that hungry but ate 'em up anyway!! Don't let the other mediocre reviews stop you from trying this recipe. It's a good base, just modify to your family's taste and you will have a real winner!!

Glazed Meatloaf I

Reviewed: Dec. 9, 2004
This meatloaf is a huge hit!! I did make a few changes. I used 1/4 cup of ketchup, 1/2 cup of Gates BBQ sauce, substituted a mix of worchestire sauce and balsamic vinegar for the lemon juice and used a dry onion soup mix instead of chopped onions. I also toasted the slices of bread before crumbling them into the mix. This is now everyone's new favorite. I made it a second time for a big family gathering and everyone wanted the recipe. My aunt has already made it twice! Thank you for helping me find a way to make meatloaf spectacular!

Roasted Vegetables

Reviewed: Dec. 9, 2004
I made this dish for my husband's potluck at work because I wanted something different than the usual veggie side. He brought the dish home empty and said that everyone enjoyed it very much. Thanks.

Oven Barbecued Beef Brisket II

Reviewed: Dec. 9, 2004
This was soooo easy and a huge hit! I prepared the brisket with a dry rub of garlic salt, pepper, and paprika. Then I used Gates BBQ sauce instead of chili sauce, a can of C2 (the lower-carb coke), and the soup mix. I put it all in the crockpot about noon on low and left for the day. When we came home around six, it was done and the house smelled great! We used the left-overs the next day for sandwiches. I am a real novice when it comes to cooking so I was impressed at how easy it was to make a restaurant-quality brisket. I will definitely be making this again!
