Citrus-Glazed Pork Chops

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.

    The glaze was sufficient to keep my husband from reaching for the BBQ sauce. ??

    I doubled the sauce as someone suggested, and added 1-2 Tablespoons of freshly grated ginger to the sauce. Also I covered the pan after browning the chops and used a little sesame oil for flavor. I might cube the pork before cooking next time. Excellent dish - quite sweet but I like that. Served with white rice and baked sweet potato.

    It was really wonderful! Leftovers taste just as delicious as the night you make it. I would suggest making a extra glaze so that you have it for the leftovers. And I would bet that this glaze would also be fantastic on chicken. Very easy recipe.
