    This was really tasty and very easy with ingredients that are usually at hand. Cleanup was a it difficult as I thought it would be better to cook the pork in a pan that wasn't non-stick. The brown sugar carmelized and was hard to get off. I'll know better next time.

    WOW! I loved the taste of these chops! My husband commented that they were a little too sweet for his taste. Next time I make them I'll cut down a bit on the sugar. The flavor was fantastic. I might try it on chicken breasts, too. Thanks for a great and very easy recipe!

    I was amazed how delicious this was. I modified it a bit by cutting back in the basil and doing half chili powder half paprika. This was a hit and is a keeper!
