"This easy treatment for pork caught my eye when I was paging through a cookbook and saw the word "caramelized," Elisa Lochridge recalls from her home in Beaverton, Oregon. "The slightly sweet glaze is yummy. I like to serve this over noodles or rice...or with mashed potatoes."

"Fantastic! The glaze is so simple but I will make more of it next time I make this (it's so good you'll want extra)! I used pork chops but will likely try it on chicken as well."
