    Made this tonight for dinner. Apparently Med/High is too hot on my stove. Just about the time I went to turn my pork chops, I began to smell burning sugar. Turned down the heat to cook the other side. They weren't ruined, but I'm not sure I got the best flavor. Luckily, the juices from the cooling pork chops thinned the carmelized sugar mixture a bit, so it was easy enough to get them out of the pan and clean up. Might try again with lower heat and thinner chops, so the cooking time will be less.
  2. Well, as a 27 year old divorcee, I ashamed to say that I'm a terrible cook. My mother tried, but this girl here just was not into the cooking when I was a kid. Now that I'm on my own, I have to feed myself since McDonald's is just too hard on the guts and budget. Lol This recipe came out wonderful for me. Easy to follow for someone uncomfortable at a stove. I also had the stove a little too high so the sugar started to burn just as I was finishing the chops, but the glaze the sugar made on them was delicious. Sweet, but not too much with the paprika and pepper. Thank you for sharing this. I'll be coming back here for more easy to make and learn recipes. New start, new adventure I say!
  3. I am currently in the process of making the yummy looking pork chops. I can't stop eating the sugar mixture :,D It's sooo good! I think next time I will add a little less pepper but I am pretty sure the pepper will cook out a little during the making of the pork chops. So excited for them to be done! 5/5 I will come back and add another comment seeing if my picky little sister like them??!!
