You can bake this recipe if you want to prepare it and walk away for an hour or so. Bake covered at 300 degrees F. Also, I enhanced the seasonings by rubbing each chop with a blend of cardomom, ground ginger, salt and pepper prior to browning. My kids and husband RAVED about the finished product. Read More

Well...:D... it didn't "work" for the kids. They couldn't get a grip on fruit & pork chops together. It was bland as others have said. I kind of expected that though since I didn't add any ginger just brown sugar a little maple syrup (after thickening it wasn't sweet enough I thought). It took two tablesppons cornstarch. It also took much much MUCH longer than 15 to 20 minutes to get those babies tender & I didn't even use thick chops. Read More

I only had fresh peaches so I modified the recipe a bit and it came out just fine. I used 1c. OJ 1t ground ginger and fresh peaches as the "sauce" omitting the brown sugar entirely. I also only did two chops instead of four so there was more sauce per serving. Fantastic and fast. Read More

My husband absolutely raves whenever I make this dish. I use fresh peaches and substitute orange juice for the canned peach juice. My son (age 1) won't eat the meat yet but he'll eat the peaches! Read More

Can I give this one six stars? It was super easy fast and a nice way to change up the usual pork chop dinner. Based on other suggestions I added about 1 1/2 tsp garlic and about 2 tbs of soy sauce and bit more ginger. YUM!!!! I did find that the sauce didn't thicken very much perhaps because I used 2 15 oz. cans of peaches and reserved a good amount of the peaches for snacking... I added a touch of cornstarch to the sauce and the result was perfection! I'd definitely recommend this to the busy weekday cook who needs a new way to jazz up pork chops. Read More

For people experimenting with pork recipes do not be afraid of fruit and pork... something about pork just makes it delicious with sweet. This is an awesome dish and I wouldn't change a thing!! I've made this a regular dish at home because its so simple and the kids love it! Read More

Great base recipe! Like other reviewers suggested I added a few things: 2 tbsp soy sauce 3 cloves minced garlic and 1 tsp cinnamon. Also after the 15 minutes of cooking down I removed the pork and added a water/corn starch mixture -- mixed before adding to pan (1/4c water to 2 tbsp corn starch). Absolutely yum!!! Read More

My husband and I were looking for something different and we stumbled across this recipe. I thought I had peaches but used apricots instead. The recipe was very easy and still very good with the apricots. Since our 14 month old daughter was eating this too I cut the ginger down to 1/2 tsp and it had just enough of the ginger taste to get her used to it. Thank you very much for a wonderful recipe. This has already been requested by my husband and only one week later!!! Read More

LOVE this recipe! Super quick and easy to make. I used 3 fresh peeled peaches instead of canned as well since they are so good right now and I also added 2 peeled Sweet Fruits. I also used 1 cup of orange juice instead of the canned juice and it turned out awesome. A great summer recipe! Read More
