IntroductionThese pork chops are delicious and EASY to make! Out of all of my low-cal recipes this is one of my favorites! Sauce is perfect over rice or potatoe. Be sure to use bone-in chops so that they are moist. These pork chops are delicious and EASY to make! Out of all of my low-cal recipes this is one of my favorites!

I made this tonight. I really enjoyed it. I did not heat up the oven for 5 minutes to 400 degrees. I just cooked them a little longer in the pan. My husband thought it was a little salty. I cut the sauce ingredients in half because I only made 2 chops. Nexttime I would consider cutting the soy - 11/19/12
This was a very nice choice for a change of pace. I used boneless tender pork loins with all the fat trimmed. I also placed the amalgam of ingredients over the tenderloins in the oven to create a carmelized glaze. The outcome was spectacular but the original recipe still deserves the recognition. - 1/24/11
