I was a little dubious about how a sprinkle of spice and swipe of sauce would work on the chops and whether the meal would come together in 20 minutes, but it all worked out perfectly and was absolutely delicious! This is a winner. You can read my full review at Taking On Magazines: http://www.takingonmagazines.com/turmeric-pork-chops-with-green-onion-rice/
