If you would pound your chops, they would be tender.

I was extremely disappointed with this recipe. After reading a majority of good reviews i had high hopes. it was FLAVORLESS!! the chops were dry, and everything just tasted boiled. caramelized? no. boiled onions and chops.

I used bone-in pork chops and they remained very moist. I used a different seasoning (Adobe Seasoning Mix) instead of just the salt and pepper and also added a couple of Thai chilies in the water to add a hint of spice. These were the best chops I remember having. It took a while for the water to evaporate but it's worth waiting for that to happen.

Chops tend to dry out real easy I would opt for a Chicken Thighs

Have made this several times and it is flavourful and tender. Always a hit.

My pork chops were just right, the water never fully evaporated but the flavor was great. I also used evoo instead of veg oil, and I always use a lot of onion.

Great flavor and very tender. They came out great and the whole family loved them over my previously extra dry chops.

Delicious. I added 1/2 a large vidalia to the one regular onion. I also simmered the chops uncovered so the reducing of the liquid happened faster.

My pork chops were a little tough and the water never evaporated but the flavoring was great. I also used evoo instead of veg oil.

The flavor was very good. I would add extra onion next time. The onion cooked down to nothing by the time the water evaporated. But very good otherwise
