"My family loved it! I think next time I would use a tad bit more Worcestershire sauce"
"Orange pork chops are delicious and one my family makes when we have all the ingredients. We don't usually waste time making dinner so this goes together quickly and easily. It's a keeper and going in my recipe box."
