Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very good! Everyone loved them - I did cook them longer to make sure they were tender. Great flavor, but not over powering. Plenty of sauce to put over mashed potatoes.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from One of my all time favorite pork recipes There is something just magical about this recipe. Maybe it's the tender, flavorful pork chop. Maybe it's the sauce, strong but not overwhelming and delicious over veggies. It's not heavy but incredible filling. This recipe has never failed to please. I have only made one modification to this recipe - my family likes cream of mushroom instead of cream of celery.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Simple and Delicious I needed something that I could throw in the oven and have ready when we got home so we modified a bit and it was amazing! With only 15 minutes of prep, we tossed the green beans and the pork chops in the oven and when we got home an hour and half later everything was ready and tasted amazing. One of my new favorites!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love these pork chops I made these last night and they were amazing! Super easy to make, and so good. I did not have cream of celery but I used cream of mushroom and it was perfect. My husband and 8 year old already want me to make it again. I only did 4 pork chops but would do at least 6 next time so we all have leftovers.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Such Great Flavor! Give me pork chops and a sauce and I am a happy girl! This recipe came together so quick and easy. There was enough sauce left for a few more chops so when I make this again, I will bump up the servings. I also think this would be great with chicken.
