awsome,looking for something different for the long cold winter.loved it,and very easy to make,i added a little honey too.kmberley in michigan..
Delicious! I used a pork steak and cut the baking time accordingly, very tasty loved the flavours.
I made up this recipe last night - it was delicious. My husband and I are not great pork chop eaters but we had been given some plus some sweet potatoes so after looking for a recipe I settled on this one. The flavour of the orange with the pepper and cinnamon was very interesting, something I would not have imagined to use if I was making this up by myself, and the chops just fell off the bones. Yummy! I will add a little more orange juice next time. We will certainly have this again - next time we have pork chops!
