No apple cider, so I used orange juice. I doubled the sauce(because once I made the first batch, it didn't seem like there was enough)and added two tbsp. of cornstarch to the orange juice before I added it to the sauce. I did add two tbsp. of spicy brown mustard to give it a little sweet and sour twang to it. I browned the chops in butter, layered them in a metal baking dish and spooned the sauce over the top. Not too sweet, plenty of flavor. There were NO leftovers and I used six large chops. There was just enough sauce for the chops and for my husband to spoon some on his rice. I served this with an oniony brown rice and steamed broccoli. Nice well-rounded dinner. I'd make this again. Read More

I followed the recipe exactly. It was very quick, easy and wonderfully different. Even my picky kids liked this!(For some reason, they don't usually care for the taste of pork chops & I've tried several recipes.)Definitely a keeper! Read More

Very good and super quick, easy and inexpensive! I did sprinkly the chops liberally with salt, pepper and onion powder before cooking, then followed the recipe as written. The only thing I would suggest is letting them rest a few minutes before serving. Will definitely make again! Went GREAT with homemeade sausage, apple, golden raisin stuffing... Nice alternative to the same old pork chops and applesauce! Read More

Really good! I baked them instead of pan cooking them, but I followed the recipe exactly. The hubster suggested adding a little more cranberry next time. Read More

I also sustituted orange juice for the concentrate. In the end, I added about a teaspoon of cornstarch to the sauce for thickening. The house smelled wonderful and the chops did not disappoint! Read More

Love this. Watch the amount of pepper you use in the beginning. Read More

Very good flavor! Definitely double the sauce to adequately accompany the chops. I found it a bit too sweet, so next time I will reduce the honey. Most cranberry sauces have added sugars so I don't think you need to add more. The nutmeg and ginger could be increased for a more complex flavor. Read More

Very very good, flavorful and does not come out too dry which is a common problem with pork chops. Made as is except for I used regular orange juice instead of concentrate because it was what I had on hand. Great new way to have pork instead of the usual apples, bbq sauce or teriyaki Read More
