This is a quick and easy way to make a tasty pork chop dish in a frying pan.
It has a sweet, creamy sauce, and all things considered, can be pretty calorie-wise for what you get.
It’s a great way mid-week to make a quick meal from ingredients you have in your food storage.
It’s suggested that you serve this over rice.
(To be clear, this is a “Cooking with Canning you have already done” recipe. This is not a recipe for canning. )

- 523 calories, 827 mg sodium
You can reduce calories to 332 by using smaller 100 g (3 oz) pork chops.
Most of the sodium (about 700 mg of it) comes from the soy sauce; you may be able to find a lighter one.
