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.
“I created this recipe several years ago,” relates Jill McDeavitt of Greybull, Wyoming. “Since then, my family always asks to have pork chops done this way.” With onion, basil, garlic and rosemary, they pack flavor in every bite.
