    So personally I do not eat pork chops, but I made this for my boyfriend I was going to cut recipe in half but I had 3 pork chops in the package and if I didn’t make the full amount of the sauce that goes on them I wouldn’t have had enough depending on how many pork chops you do I suggest doubling or even 2.5x the amount of the sauce for 4 pork chops I just barely had enough for 3 pork chops and the amount of what it calls for 4 chops.

    Not nearly enough sauce, you need very good meat to pull this off
    Turned out great on the Treager. Will make again.
