This was very good and used stuff I stock in my pantry. A simple way to serve an elegant dish! I used some strawberry/banana orange juice since that's what I had on hand, but the tastes still matched well. This is one for my recipe box! :)

Excellent recipe and very easy to make! My entire family enjoyed it. I have a very picky eater, and she wanted me to make it again the next day. My husband said it was restaurant quality. I did modify it a little. I had no OJ so I substituted the drained pear juice. I deglazed the frying pan with the sherry. I also used more cornstarch & water. I used about 2 Tbsp. cornstarch and 1/4 c water. This will definitely added to my monthly menu!

WOW! I served this over egg noodles with homegrown Swiss Chard on the side and we were in heaven! The sauce really makes this dish. I had leftover pork chops and needed something easy and pantry friendly. It felt way too fancy for a Thursday night. This is a real keeper!

I served this for a New Year's Eve dinner. Although it's very easy to prepare, it looks like I went to a great deal of trouble. The taste is superb...just a hint of cinnamon. My guests raved! Thanks for sharing, Pianolady!

I loved this! The DH is not the biggest fan of pork chops but he enjoyed this with the pears as well! Next time I want to try a variation of the recipe using apples!

I was surprised with how light and tasty this dish actually was. I just used orange juice instead of sherry (it needed a bit more cornstarch to thicken up as well) but I think it probably would've been better with the sherry, or at least some type of wine. The chops I used were maybe half an inch thick, and I cut off 10 minutes in the overall cooking time, but they still came out pretty dry so that was disappointing. I guess I'll have to shorten the time even more, or just skip browning them. But overall it was still very nice and I'm sure I'll make these again. These were also great with Asian pears!

This was delicious and moist! I used the OJ since I didn't have any sherry on hand and sprinkled flour in the pan instead of cornstarch. I just kept wisking in a little more till the sauce got a little thicker--I didn't actually cook it. Will definitely make this again! Thanks!
