These simple pork chops have a sweet but spicy flavor. This dish requires a flambe, but if you cannot (or are afraid to do so), you can always add the orange liqueur to the marinade before you reduce it, though the result is not quite the same. From Jaime Ernesto Arrieta, San Salvador, El Salvador.
