"Pork loin chops are stuffed with a mixture of couscous, currants, and pine nuts, then coated in marmalade, and baked."
Hmm. None of these ingredients are on sale today.

1 1/2 cups
reduced-sodium chicken broth, divided
onion, finely chopped
salt and freshly ground black pepper
boneless pork loin chops, butterflied
I made a couple of small changes. Used Pine nut flavored couscous in place of pine nuts & regular couscous, water in place of chicken broth, & dried cranberries in place of currents. It was delicious!
This was pretty good! The stuffing mixture got pretty mushy for me, while the pork was a little tough. Any ideas on how to make sure the meat stays more moist?
My husband liked these, but we had mixed reviews with everyone else... I followed the recipe except that I used apricot preserves in place of the marmalade... I used boxed couscous with pinenuts and added some dried cranberries. I thought it was pretty good. I didn't add more couscous on top because I think it looks nicer with just the preserves. If I make again, I'll smooth out the preserves with a little OJ. Another thing I better mention is that the recipe suggests to use a small dish, but when I did that, about halfway through the cooking time, they were swimming in pork fat (yuck)... I had to transfer them out so the couscous wouldn't soak it up!
This is fantastix! I didn't have currants or craisins, so i chopped up homemade cinnamon pears and some sesame seeds (no pine nuts, either). Everybody loved this, definitely a keeper!
This was an easy recipe to follow and gave the right suggestions. I did change up the recipe by using dried apricots (no currants) and roasted slivered almonds (no pine nuts). Very yummy!! The couscous was great the next day as a side item for lunch.
This first time I made this recipe, I had to make one change. I substituted dried cranberries (craisins) for the currants (I don't use them.) It was GREAT! The second time I made it (for my Dad's birthday), I doubled the couscous stuffing. I ended up with enough to almost cover the chops. It worked just fine. The chops were moist and we had plenty of the stuffing to have as a side. This recipe is definately a keeper!
This was wonderful and easy to make
it was alright but won't make again.
