  1. You are right! This will stay in my dinner rotation for sure! Sometimes I forget that Italian isn’t just spaghetti and meatballs!

  2. 5 stars
    I seem to avoid pork chops because mine turn out so dry but these were spectacular! So juicy and the flavors were wonderful. My family can’t wait for me to make this again.

  3. 5 stars
    I’m still thinking about how good this pork was! I made extra house seasoning blend for this weekend. We’re grilling out and I just know it’s going to be amazing on the chicken!


  4. This recipe sounds delicious, but must I buy more difficult to find spices? First what is “House Seasoning Blend”? Second what is “”Porketta Seasoning Blend”? I live in a small town and do not have access to grocery stores with a lot of ethnic type spices. I had to order garam masala online. Please tell me that it is worth the effort. And also what they are.
