    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!
