Reviews for Apricot Glazed Pork Chops
"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!!!"
"Very easy and good. Quick to put together the night before. I will make it again."
"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."
