Cranberry Orange Porkchops

Marina Neff


I've been meaning to make these for a while.

I had some center cut boneless chops that I needed to use because they had been thawed for a couple days - and got to thinking about doing something different with them for a change and well, one thing led to another and this was the extremely tasty result.

Hope you enjoy!!
