This recipe is such a winner! Made it for the second time tonight, and we loved it just as much as the first time--which isn't always the case. Served it on top of brown basmati rice. We don't always love brown rice but are trying to use it more and this was a natural go-with! I use one of those fabulous Termapen instant read thermometers, and so cooked the chops to perfection. Any serious cook should consider owning one.
Made the whole recipe for two of us, so there is another dinner waiting in the frig for later this week.
This was good and pretty easy to make. The pork chops were nice and tender. The only thing that I am not sure I liked was the addition of the vinegar. I almost think that with the addition of the jarred jalapeno's they already have a vinegar taste and the addition of the cider vinegar might have been too much.
Really wonderful and flavorful recipe, as the other reviewers have noted. Moist pork chop with just the perfect amount of spice/heat. And SO easy to make. I reduced the salt by about a 1/4, and next time might reduce it a bit more, and I might try playing with more ancho chile powder/less cumin just to see how it goes. But the recipe was really wonderful as written!
this dish was fantastic!!! Will definitely be in our rotation - it was bursting with flavor! I didn't add that much extra broth as I wanted it thicker and therefore it kept its "green" pea soup looking hue but I didn't care it was tasty!!!! made some chipotle mashed potatoes to go with it - PERFECT! The best part is my husband does not prefer pork chops but he LOVED it!!! thank you!
Fantastic dish. Super flavorful and tender. Highly recommended.
This is a very flavorful recipe! Well-balanced with salty, spicy, a little sweet from canned chiles, and acidic from the cider vinegar. The cooking method makes the pork moist and tender. I used pork chops (1 inch thick as recommended in recipe) that I purchased from my Meat CSA. Give it a try!
Made this last night. It was very good and easy. Not too spicy, with just a bit of heat. My wife,who does not like spicy dishes, thought it was great. Made exactly to the recipe. All of my cooking times were a bit longer.
Very easy and very flavorful. An excellent quick meal!
This was an excellent recipe! My husband and daughter were fighting over who would get the leftover chop!
A keeper. Wife and son both really enjoyed it. I used a mild Jalapeño since there was already chile powder and cumin in it. The heat was just right. Grocery didn't have any thick boneless chops, so I used some bone-in ones. Made for a large serving, but they came out very tender. This one will be going in the iPhone for future spur-of-the-moment, pick-it-up-on-the-way-home meals.
