  1. Heat olive oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Season pork chops with salt and pepper, and cook in the hot oil until lightly browned on both sides, about 4 minutes per side. Add the wine, orange juice, and tarragon, and bring to a simmer. Reduce heat to medium-low, cover and simmer, stirring occasionally, 10 to 15 minutes, until the pork is no longer pink in the center. Remove the pork chops from the skillet, set aside, and keep warm.
  2. Dissolve the cornstarch in the water, and stir into the simmering liquid until the sauce thickens, about 45 seconds. Pour sauce over the pork chops to serve.

I used bone in pork chops and it turned out fine. I did the orange reduction versus the cornstarh thickening method and it was delicious! It took a little extra time, but well worth it IMO.

This very simple recipe is lovely. I read other review and agree that more orange juice is key (a added a cup) and I used fresh tarragon (about 2 teaspoons.) As the sauce was thickening, a dash ...

This was very tasty and moist. Although I am not fond of orange flavour I still liked it.

Most excellent... this also works well with Chicken breasts.

Great recipe, like others I increased orange juice the orange juice to 2cup as well as the wine (1/4+ cup) and then reduced it once the chops were cooked. This produced a intense glossy golden s...

My family LOVED these chops!! I don't know if it made a difference or not, but, I squeezed the OJ, cause I didn't have any thing else...And, I didn't tweak it either...Maybe next time I will, ca...

For once, I did what the recipe said. They were great.
