Pork Chops With Soy-Orange Sauce

READY IN: 50mins
Recipe by Chef Diva Divine

One of Martha's quick cookbook favorites and sure to one of yours as well. **These pork chops are also SUPERB grilled over charcoals. Reduce the marinade seperately in a saucepan & pour oer the chops after removing from grill.**

I got this recipe from one of her cookbooks years ago. I have adapted it over time to cook in the oven to make the chops tender. I brown the chops as directed and then put them in the oven (covered) for 1 1/2 hours on 350. Turn them halfway...they are so tender this way. Then you use the same pan to make the sauce from the marinade you reserved.
