Tasty Pork Chops Recipe

"My husband has always preferred beef to pork," writes Carolyn Huddelestun of Rockford, Illinois. "But after I prepared pork this way, he's often asked me to make it again. We like this best served with rice or mashed potatoes."
TOTAL TIME: Prep/Total Time: 25 min. YIELD:2 servings


  • 1/2 cup orange juice
  • 1 tablespoon brown sugar
