    I must admit to a bit of a bias; I grew up with this exact same recipe! These days, I use boneless country-style pork ribs so that I don't have to deal with the bones. Everyone loves this dish!  -  25 Jan 2008  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    This is a delicious recipe. The only change I made was to sub Mrs. Dash for the salt. Excellent pressure cooker recipe. Update - to speed up I started quartering the potatoes and cooking the pork chops till they are a little more done and then only cooking for four minutes when it gets up to pressure.  -  25 Feb 2007  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
