    This certainly had some kick. After reading some of the other reviews I used garlic powder instead of garlic salt. I also used smoked paprika, but everything else followed the recipe. I cut my pork chops into cubes, threw them in a plastic bag with the spices and shook, then sauteed with EVOO. Served over couscous for a delicious meal!  -  21 Sep 2009  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    I didn't really like this recipe at all. It just didn't taste good to me. I could taste the sage over powering it, and it was really not that spicy  -  25 Aug 2009  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    very nice spice to this one. I have some leftovers that I'm going to use for tacos tomorrow. Followed the recipe exactly except I used real butter and evoo and I didn't have sage, BUT I think I would like it better without. I served it with home made apple sauce and a tossed green salad. Thanks for sharing.  -  28 Jul 2009  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
