This recipe is from one of Williams Sonoma Cooking Classes in 2005.
I love these classes.
These chops or ham slices are so good you will love to try this recipe on some of your ham slices left from that holiday ham.
These are so succulent you will be telling everyone about this recipe- or maybe not- you might keep it to yourself- Nah---
