This recipe is really good although the way it's written is kind of misleading i.e. doesn't tell you the size of pork chops you should be using. Well in any case I used a thin sliced pork chop and messed up on my first try reason: I was cooking too hot and simmering way too high. The whole process took me about 15 minutes to complete but if you are using a standard stove (i.e. dials from 1 - 9) you should use 5 to cook the chop brown on both side and then simmer at 1 or low for 5 minutes.

Unfortunately this recipe turned out disastrously for me. I followed the directions but apparently this is designed for thick pork chops. I had thinner ones and ran into some real problems. Although I left the heat on medium the entire cooking time the liqueur scorched on the bottom of the pan and the whole thing was not edible. So make sure to try this with thick chops or be VERY careful! Read More

I was suspicious when I read the recipe but I had the ingredients on hand and gave it a try. I was pleasantly surprised at how delicious it was and my husband told me that I can make this again any time I want (high praise from him.) The only things I might change is to add a little more on the garlic and use just lemon not orange slices to make the gravy a little more tangy. Read More

Very tasty. I actually ended up cooking mine in the over for 30 to 40 minutes (at 350) after browing the meat on the stove top. I drained the juices and then made the sauce with the corn starch after pulling it out of the oven. Read More

I'm impressed I wasn't too sure when I first saw the ingredients but this was a great recipe. I didn't agree w/ the cooking steps so I changed them as needed. Read More

Very Good! I had to make a change because the oranges that I thought I had were gone (my son) so I added a little orange juice to the liquid. The sauce was very good. Tangy and a little sweet. Other than that I followed the recipe and the chops were wonderful. Read More

I was really excited about this recipe but wasn't very impressed with the taste. I am probably going to add more Kaluha and some mushrooms to salvage the leftovers. Read More

This was so easy to make tasted delicious and had a simple yet elegant presentation. I would definitely make this again! (I made mine without any wine but I think including it next time will make the dish even better). Read More

We really enjoyed this recipe. I did not have coffee liqueur so I used white wine instead. I have also used this recipe with chicken breast and it was very good. My children even enjoy it. Thanks for sharing Carol this has made it into my kitchen recipe box. Read More
