Reviews for Apricot Glazed Pork Chops
"I prepared these delicious pork chops tonight. I used sugar free apricot preserves as the only substitution to the recipe. We will be having this recipe again. I highly recommend this recipe as a Volunteer Field Editor for Taste of Home."
"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."
"Make more, even then there will be no 'left-overs.'"
"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."
