"This is an old magazine clipping that the MIL gave me and she has written on it that she made it in May 1988 and found it truly beautiful. Please note that the pork chops we use tend to be very lean, so a lot fat is not produced in the cooking process."

Very good. I doubled the sauce so we could have it over rice. The lemon was just right for us. Would be good on chicken or fish also.

This was really good...but we didn't taste the lemon...it was lost in the sauce...but the sauce was really delicious...I used thick pork loin chops...they came out perfect...I made rice while cooking and the two were done almost at the same time...I only cooked two chops but made the full amount of the sauce...served the extra sauce over the rice...made for FYC tag game...
