Begin your meal with sweet and citrusy Orange-Glazed Pork Chops from Athena Russell of Florence, South Carolina who loves to create recipes. “I have a passion for cooking; I've been doing it since elementary school,” she writes. The chops are tender and juicy, and with a bit of Dijon and orange juice you'll have bursts of flavor in every bite.
This is my favorite "penny pincher" skillet supper. Sweet red peppers add color and flavor to this main dish, but when I'm watching our budget, I use less expensive green peppers. —Jorie Welch of Acworth, Georgia
This is my favorite way to grill pork chops. The meat turns out so moist and tender when it's fixed like this. Usually, I serve the chops with fresh corn on the cob or green beans and dinner rolls. Your family will love it!
Pears and brandy team up to turn ordinary pork chops into a restaurant-quality dish that’s good enough for guests. Serve with an upscale side, such as brussels sprouts or asparagus, and a glass of wine for a fantastic meal. —Gina Quartermaine, Alexandria, Virginia
"I'm glad my sister-in-law shared the recipe for this coating mix for pork," says Margaret Welder. "It comes in handy when unexpected guests drop by, and it's wonderful on chicken, too." The Madrid, Iowa reader usually bakes the tender chops, but it's even quicker to cook them on the stovetop.
On days I volunteer at church or shuttle between after-school activities, I'm glad this dinner comes together in one skillet. The sauce makes the chops so moist and tender. I also simmer it up with other meats like beef or venison steaks.—Tammy Messing, Ruth, Michigan
“This tasty pork dish makes a great entree and has become a family favorite over the years.” It’s lower in carbs, and the sweet, tangy sauce is fantastic served over chicken, too. Make extra if you’re having mashed potatoes. Nella Parker - Hersey, Michigan
