Apricot Glazed Pork Chops Recipe

I’ve served these tasty pork chops for birthdays, Easter dinner and for no special reason at all. They’re easy to double or even triple to feed a crowd. —Sondra Warson, Madrid, Iowa

"I used peach preserves instead of apricot because I picked up the wrong jar by accident. It was a happy mistake because it turned out great! I used it on country style ribs and my husband really enjoyed them."

"Made these pork chops last night. They are awesome. My daughter who is a very picky eater loved them. Everyone had seconds, glad i doubled the recipe. i used sugar free preserves, that's what i had on hand."

"These few simple ingredients make a power house glaze! The vibrant taste of the glaze is spectacular. Perfect combination of flavors, my son liked extra 'glaze' on his. We used two pork tenderloins. This is a new favorite!!!"

"If you add the ingredients together for the marinade you will end up with more than 3/4 cup. After measuring 3/4 cup for the chops to marinade in, reserve the rest of it to baste the chops when grilling. Directions are right on. There will be some sauce left."

"1st Direction says reserve marinade.

2nd Direction says discard the marinade.
3rd Direction says baste with reserved marinade.
Need to proof read."

"I would like to try this recipe but bake the chops instead of grill. Would someone please suggest the temperature and time and covered or not. No matter how many pork chop recipes I try, they never turn out as moist as I would like. Thanks"

"Good and easy. Mommalee, it says earlier in the recipe to keep back part of the marinade and refrigerate it. That's the marinade that's used to baste the meat, not the part that was in the bag marinating the raw meat. Not confusing to me at all, and a common practice."

MY REVIEW

"To mammalee... the recipe clearly states to pour 3/4 of the marinade in a bag to marinate the chops. Save the other 1/4 for basting. I added a touch of fresh garlic...viola!!!"

"There shouldn't be any confusion about what to do with the marinade. The instructions clearly say to discard the portion of the marinade that was used to marinade the meat and to baste with the portion that had been set aside for that very purpose."

"To get more flavor---freeze in the marinade, grill when thawed----"

MY REVIEW

"No stars because of the confusion about what to do with the marinade. Marinades should be discarded after that long and NOY used to baste meat. Which is it in these instructions. Keep-discard. It is misleading and therefore dangerous."

"These turned out better than expected. The marinade smelled a little bland but was good once grilled. Will make again. Agree with other reviewer and may add garlic or other spices just to add an extra kick."
