frozen orange juice concentrate, thawed
salt, or to taste
1 large clove
thick cut pork chops
Yum! These turned out great. I didn't have any frozen orange juice concentrate, so I used regular orange juice. I also boiled the marinade at the end to use as a sauce, which was good too.
I myself loved it but the husband and kids found it too "exotic" LOL. They didn't care for the orange flavor and though I didn't tell them it was in there (I have learned not to tell them what's in anything) they picked it up right away. So for me, I would make it again and again, but if you have picky kids or a picky husband, they may not like this.
The flavor of these were great. I used thick chops and broiled them for 8 minutes on each side. They turned out really moist and flavorful. I would make this again.
We really enjoyed this, and it was a great way to use up some BBQ sauce whose flavor we didn't care for by itself. We added some extra garlic, and cooked the chops on a Foreman grill for about 20 minutes, and they turned out great. Not very spicy at all, so if that's what you're looking for, maybe throw in some crushed red peppers too.
Prepared this recipe for a family gathering. Everyone went wild over it. Not a morsel left. Simple to prepare.
We LOVED the flavor of this recipe. Followed the recipe to a T and it was wonderful! Also simmered the remaining marinade to use as a sauce (the flavors are strong so a little goes a long way). Also,I only was able to marinate the chops for about 6 hours and it was fine. Thank you Diana!
Really delicious. I did not include the rosemary b/c we were out - but I don't think the recipe suffered. My husband & 4 year old loved it - and my 4 year old doesn't love ANYTHING. Will definitely make again.
I THOUGHT THIS WAS JUST OKAY. I USED BONELESS CHICKEN INSTEAD OF PORK CHOPS. WHEN I GRILLED THE CHICKEN SOME OF THE MARINADE TURNED A BIT BLACK. OVERALL I THINK IT IS WORTH TRYING AGAIN.
