    everyone at my tennis club asked for the recipe! The oyster sauce seems like a wierd ingredient, but tastes great with the herbs.  -  10 Feb 2003  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    This was very good and different. I had lots of zucchini and was wanted a new recipe for pork chops. I didn't add the oyster sauce b/c I don't like the taste of seafood. It was delcious without it.  -  29 Oct 2005  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    Excellent soup! I make this for all new moms I know, along with a sald and loaf of bread. It keeps in the freezer and fridge well. If zucchini aren't in season, I use canned artichoke quarters. And for vegetarians, it's great if you just leave out the pork and substitute vegetable broth.  -  15 Jan 2006  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
