AWESOME!! Having a few guests, I used 2 pkgs of chops(10 chops), but each pkg barely weighed a lb...thus they were very thin chops. I used 4 heaping TBLS of brown sugar, added some minced garlic and chopped onions to the ketchup mix and before pouring the sauce overall, I sprinkled S&P and a dash of garlic powder over each chop. This was amazing! They were so tender and full of flavor! It was soo easy...will be making again!

I did not like this? I have had Ham cook with cola and brown sugar but this just did not turn out good..

To say I was skeptical would be an understatement. These turned out really good. Only thing I would recommend is cook for 45-50 minutes instead of a full hour. Will definitely make these again.

I read the other reviews and based on comments of blandness and dryness of the chips, I seasoned first with a little salt, pepper and garlic powder. I also cooked them on the stove top in a non-stick pan. I cooked them covered for about 30 minutes (adjust for thickness of chops) and then cooked at medium high heat for 10 minutes with the top off so the sauce would thicken. You could remove the chops while you thicken the sauce to avoid drying them out.

This was quite simply the BEST pork chop recipe I have ever tried. Following the advice of others who reviewed this recipe, I substituted half the ketchup with my favorite BBQ sauce. Then I poured a little of the sauce down in the pan before placing the chops in. Finally I covered the pan with foil and baked them for 45 minutes. Perfection. They were so tender they melted in my mouth, and my husband and daughter both thought they were absolutely delicious. I will definitely be making this dish again and again. Thanks for the great recipe!

My husband and kids really like this dish. I do make it a little different and that's browning the chops in the hot skillet first, then sauteeing a little chopped onion and minced garlic in a little butter until it "softens", then adding in the cola, ketchup and brown sugar and letting that all cook together. My boys like this either with hot buttered rice or mashed potatoes. For them, this is pure comfort food.

Great new way to serve pork chops! I mixed in the brown sugar instead of sprinkling on top & marinaded about an hour. Also, if you want the marinade to stay on top of chops, just put a little bit of marinade on bottom so chops don't burn and pack them tightly together without any extra space on the sides. Then pour marinade over and it will come out thick & almost glazed on top. My hubby loved this! Definite keeper! Thank You!!
