I was disappointed with this recipe. It was very easy, but I didn't think it was very flavorful. I will look for another recipe rather than try this again.

Another keeper. I marinated the chops overnight and grilled them on our Traeger BBQ. I wouldn't hesitate to serve these to guests and it was a nice, easy recipe. I served them with sauted green beans with hazelnuts (another CL recipe) and garlic couscous.

I followed the recipe as given and it got rave reviews. I served it with sugar snap peas and garlic grits. I especially liked the minimal effort to cook the chops as well as the clean up afterwards. It's definitely a keeper.
