Greek-Style Pork Chops

    Good budget meal. Added ½ cup green bell pepper and ¼ cup feta cheese (to use up stuff from the fridge). The 3 tbs of yogurt sauce was too much per chop, probably should have served less & added more to taste.

    Awesome! Yogurt sauce was perfect with the cucumber. Very easy to make. Next time will leave out the onion as it was a little sharp.

    Wow! So simple and yet so incredibly delicious. This recipe came together really quickly. I had to scrap my first dinner idea because of a missing key ingredient for which I am so thankful. I used champagne vinegar rather than the red wine vinegar which gave it the zing without the tartness of regular vinegar. My husband loved it as well. It looks great on the plate making it the perfect recipe for entertaining. Served it with fresh corn on the cob.

    Cook exactly as directed and you will have the most tender chop.

    I loved this recipe! It was easy and delicious. I cooked enough so that I have leftovers for tomorrow night and cannot wait to finish it. I'm also impressed with how low in calories this dish is. I needed a side so I heated up a slice of Trader Joe's Naan Bread and it was perfect. I have already recommended this to friends. I wouldn't change a thing!

    This was a cinch to make, and my family LOVED it,even the kids! Wonderful flavor!! I served it with brown rice and roasted carrots - 2lbs of carrots quartered lenghtwise and then cut in thirds. Toss with 1 1/2 TBS,. olive oil & 2 tsp. paprika. 450 oven for 15-20 minutes, tossing them on the sheet a couple times.

    The reviews of this recipe are spot on - excellent, easy to prepare, great dinner in very short time. As noted in another review - FRESH DILL makes the yogurt sauce!! This will be a regular on our menu.

    Very flavorful and easy. I doubled the oil & vinegar for the marinade as it seemed a little stingy and I'm counting every calorie right now. I served it with couscous topped with pine nuts and feta. I would make this again and have forwarded the recipe to friends.

    Love this dish. It is cheap, low cal, and easy. Can't beat it for a week night diner.

    My boyfriend and I loved this! So easy and cheap to make! We put 2 teaspoons of vinegar on the veggies for a little more flavor, and used about a teaspoon of dill "spice" instead of fresh and it was still great. I will definitely make it again.

    I made the recipe as posted, but maybe just a little more olive oil. I used 3 bone in chops. I used the grill pan for 3-4 minutes, flipped the chops and put into a hot oven for a few minutes. The salad was tasty. I served with roasted spiced/herbed potatoes. Will make it again.

    I was really excited about this recipe and it just didn't live up to my expectations. I love greek yogurt sauce, but this version tasted funny. Since the other reviews were so positive, it leads me to believe that I messed up the ingreidents in some way. Despite the sauce, I wasn't that impressed with the pork chops. They didn't seem to absorb any flavor from the marinade. I probably won't make this again.

    I loved this recipe. My roommate also loved it he is not a very picky eater but when it comes to food he is 100 % spanish so I was thinking he may not like the yogurt sauce. He actually loved it. Next time I'd use less than the amount recommended. I followed the recipe. I really enjoyed it and it didnt take long at all.

    Followed the recipe and very yummy. Kids (under 8) loved it! Served with herbed couscous pilaf (July 2011 CL) and a pinot noir.

    This is simple, quick to make, and delicious: how can you go wrong? Absolutely a family favorite!!! I doubled the marinade to ensure the pork was flavorful. LOVED the yogurt sauce!!

  • grebilb Posted: 09/05/12

    Pretty darn good and pretty darn easy. I agree with another reviewer that the pork didn't really take on much flavor from the marinate (which I doubled). Might do better to marinate over night. Also agree that adding feta to the salad is a perfect addition. The best part though was what I did with the left overs. The next night I cut up the left over pork, combine everything together - pork, salad, sauce - and served over pita. Much like a gyro. Subtle change, but equally as tasty :)

    I have made this many times and tried it tonight with pork tenderloin. I let it marinade for about 40 minutes. Outstanding. I always use Chobani's peach yogurt in place of the plain before mixing in the other ingredients and that works really well with the pork.

  • MinnieCat Posted: 05/23/12

    Easy, and surprisingly tasty. Made it for a date and her went back for seconds.

  • Jane14 Posted: 06/22/12

    One of my absolute favorites! Has a nice sweetness of the salsa in contrast to the zing of the Greek yogurt and dill.

  • CodyandMaggie Posted: 05/09/13

    This is a very delicious recipe. At the last minute, I realized that I was out of red wine vinegar so I did a combination of balsamic vinegar and some blush wine. It was really delicious. Just like other reviewers, I added feta cheese and a tiny bit of Greek dressing to the salad. I also marinaded the meat for more than an hour. Not much talking over dinner, mostly just chewing and swallowing! Just got a great idea from another reviewer for the left-overs too!

    Great dish. The flavors are wonderful. I wouldn't hesitate to serve it to guests for something really special.

  • ThePryorFamily Posted: 07/19/14

    Super easy to make and packed with flavors!! I would suggest to add more garlic, salt, red wine vinegar, and oil into the bag when marinating. I had to really work the bag full of pork when I marinated as there wasn't enough to cover all 4 pork chops. Also, on top of getting fresh dill, I suggest you add a teaspoon of ground dill to it as well. It helps cut the sour flavor of the Greek yogurt. My husband told me I became a true chef after cooking this delicious meal. I failed to tell him how easy it was to make!! LoL

  • Stacey1vg Posted: 02/19/14

    Nothing special in my opinion. It needed something. More vinegar something. I found it pretty bland. I used dried dill instead of fresh. My hubby seconded my opinion.

    This was so damn nasty. I followed the directions. Me and my wife thought it was nasty. My own dogs wouldn't even eat this garage. I had to throw it all out. If you enjoy real food then don't waste your time and money on this one.

    Made this tonight and followed the recipe except that since I don't have a grill pan, I broiled the chops at about 6 minutes per side. I didn't think there was enough marinade and I will likely double the next time, but still, we really enjoyed the meal. Especially loved the yogurt sauce and tomato salad and I can see making them again for sandwiches, roasted chicken and steak.

  • Chuckie28 Posted: 08/03/14

    My family enjoyed it. It was super easy. You have to make sure that you don't forget the salt. I almost did. I also doubled the marinade to be sure I had enough. And I added some oil and vinegar, salt and pepper to the salad. You have to use fresh dilll, otherwise ithe sauce would be bland. I was a bit worried that the yogurt sauce wouldn't taste good, because by itself it really wasn't that great. But on the meat it was very good. Also, I made outside on the grill.

    Made this tonight for hubby's birthday. He LOVED it. wish I had picked up some feta to include. Next time. So my question is this: If you're using red wine vinegar, or even a bit of balsamic, how do you keep the yoghurt white? Mine definitely acquired a pinkish hue from the vinegar.
