I saw this recipe on Paula's cooking show and changed it around to my taste. Added the wine and heavy cream to mine and the spices are different.

Voted Members' Choice! We love pork chops around here and this recipe is no exception. The pork is seasoned perfectly. The pork chops simmer in a flavorful gravy. Once cooked, the pork chops are extremely tender. Serve with mashed potatoes (and make sure to load up on the creamy gravy) for a fantastic family meal.
