center-cut pork chops
ground black pepper
yellow onion, sliced
Outstanding! I highly recommend this recipe. I am a novice if it is not red meat on the grill and I think I over cooked the chops but the sauce compensated for that. This recipe is a must try.
Not as flavorful as I would have hoped. Some changes I would make is to use a hearty red wine for the reduction,a little more bacon (2-3 slices chopped) and add some coarse ground pepper to taste in the sauce.
I thought this would be a 10-star entree looking at the ingredients, but it just didn't have enough flavor. I followed the instructions to the letter, but would cook this differently if I were to make it again. First, I'd saute the onions and garlic. And instead of adding the wine to the pan and then putting the lid on it, I'd let the wine cook down to get some flavor from it. It was looking pretty anemic, so I added a little bit of Kitchen Bouquet which gave it some eye appeal, but the flavor still was lacking. Sorry, won't be making this again, it was a disappointment for us.
This recipe was really good, but my pork chops were WAY overcooked. I didn't have a meat thermometer, so I followed the times in the recipe. You can definitely go WAY shorter on the time you cook the pork in the white wine/onions/bacon. Also, the sauce was a little thin for me, so I had to add more than the recommended amount of cornstarch. The flavor was GREAT though!
Good stuff. Chopped bacon and sautéed in pan with onions. Left in pan while adding the chops. Only removed chops to make sauce, but added back to smoother.
I made this last night and it turned out beautifully. The pork chops I used were quite thick so the cooking times were perfect. The meat was tender and juicy. I used red wine instead of white because that's what I had on hand. Next time I'm adding mushrooms.
the ingredients looked like this would be a easy flavorful dish. I only cooked the chops 5min on each side (recipe called for 10min on each side) and they were extremely overdone. The meat had virtually no flavor and the sauce, though tasty, was unappealing to the eye.
I did not care for this recipe.
