Citrus Pork Chops

"These pork chops are so easy to prepare with a nice not-too-sweet flavor," assures Erika Niehoff of Eveleth, Minnesota. "The original recipe came from my dad, and it's one of my family's favorites."

    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.
