Went looking for something to marinate my pork chops in and came up short. Went back to Mom's old standby that we all love. Enjoy! My brother prefers pineapple/orange juice...go figure!

I browned these and then made the marinade but did do a few things differently. I added fresh garlic and cooked it on the stove. I then thickened it with some water and corn starch. I poured the sauce over the chops prior to baking them. They were delicious. Read More

I was satisfied with the chops after they were cooked all the way. I had to cook them for 45 minutes instead of 20. Read More

This was delightfully simple and amazingly delicious. thank you. I do not have an oven so I browned the chops in butter first then poured on the sauce and let it simmer for a while. Def making this one again. Served with mashed sweet potatoes was a good side too. Read More

I also had a hard time getting the chops done. It turned into 45 minutes and after they were finally done they were dry and the taste seemed a little off. We won't try this one again even if we changed the recipe around. Read More

This recipe was just average- nothing special. If you really like a sweet flavor with your meat you might like it more. It certainly wasn't terrible but I probably won't make it again. Read More

These were very good. I cooked the pork chops in the oven for 20 minutes and then on a skillet with the sauce for 25 minutes cooking each side for 12 1/2 minutes. Read More

This was very good. I browned the chops first then added onion, garlic and cubed potatoes. Poured the sauce into the pan and simmered for 25 min. Added bit of corn starch (in cold water) to thicken at the end. Read More

I liked it ok. As one reviewer said it wasn't anything to write home about. I may make again and use the idea of thickening the OJ solution. That would probably improve the recipe. Read More
