Had this with company and enjoyed their compliments. I reduced the liquid to a thick sauce and it was good. Applesauce is not necessary for pork any longer!! Keep the recipes coming Bergy.
Another winner from Bergy! Since I already had the oven on for dessert, I decided to convert this to a baked dish: I had 6 chops, so I doubled the sauce (using a thick-cut orange marmalade) and set it aside. I then browned the chops in some olive oil, arranged them in an oblong baking dish, and poured the sauce over; covered tight with foil, it went into a 375F oven. I then put my rice cooker on. The chops baked, covered, for 55 minutes. I served the (defatted) sauce on the side, to spoon over the chops and rice (we also had green beans). This was easy to whip up, with ingredients I always have on hand. I did eliminate the green onions, and subbed Tabasco for the crushed pepper...and because it was a family dinner, I didn't bother with the orange garnish. This was a delicious dinner thoroughly enjoyed by all; I even picked up the pork chop bones to get every good bit! I know I will make this often.
Sorry to dissent but these pork chops are just okay. My sauce never thickened and the taste was alright.
