Orange-Topped Chops

This recipe has just two main ingredients, plus a few seasonings. As the chops simmer, they'll pick up the fruity flavor. You can substitute any canned fruit for the oranges. —Cindy Milleson, Bozeman, Montana

    This is easy and relatively good. The time given is too long so use a temperature probe.

    I too used boneless chops. The oranges complemented the pork very well!

    I used boneless pork chops and pineapple rings. I discovered that cookiing time and temperature are excessive. I made a sauce with the pineapple juice and cornstarch and served all over rice.
