  1. 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 - Read more ...
  2. I did not like this? I have had Ham cook with cola and brown sugar but this just did not turn out good..
  3. To thicken the sauce.... lightly flour the chops before you put them in the pan. Put a bit of sauce in the bottom of the pan then chops then sauce. I have made this for up to 50 people and I can even layer everything. It comes out great every time!
  4. 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 - Read more ...
  5. 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 - Read more ...
  6. Recipes do not come much easier than this! I let my pork chops sit in the ketchup/cola/brown sugar sauce for about 1/2 hour. Baked at 350 degrees for 45 minutes and the chops turned out perfectly. This would be great on chicken as well. Five stars for ease and taste.
  7. 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.
  8. 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 - Read more ...
  9. This is the best pork chop recipe for someone who loves tender chops but doensn't necessarily like the spicyness of barbeque. Putting foil on the bottom of the pan helps with cleanup and the sauce is terrific for pouring over the chops when you serve them! Thanks for the recipe!!!!!
  10. 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 - Read more ...
