Looking for a pork chop recipe that’s not just the same old thing but is still easy to get on the table? This recipe for orange pork chops has you covered!
Confession time: I am a lazy cook. That doesn’t mean I don’t want my meals to taste good In fact, I am a glutton for compliments and I want to hear that dinner was delicious. But I’m also busy and have lots to do (just like you do!). I don’t want to spend hours in the kitchen – in fact, I refuse to do so!
I want to get in and out of the kitchen as quickly as possible while still having something tasty to serve the folks at my dinner table. Therefore, I’m always on the lookout for something quick and easy, or I’m going to come up with my own.
I was playing around in the kitchen when I decided that brown sugar and marmalade would add a nice flavor to the pork chops I had thawed. After all, brown sugar makes everything taste better, right? The result was a pork chop that, while flavorful, was still mild and not overpowering. The result satisfied both Jungle Jim (who wants flavor) and my dad (who has a tender tummy). It made me happy because it didn’t take long to throw together!
