Citrus Pork Chops
(First star is lowest, fourth star is highest)
Jennifer Sayad of Mableton tells us, "This is a recipe that my mother passed on to me several years ago. It has become one of my husband's most requested meals." While the chops are cooking, jazz up some canned sweet potatoes. In a heavy sauce pan stir 1/2 cup brown sugar, one thinly sliced lemon and a cup of juice from the potatoes. Cut until sugar is completely dissolved and begins to thicken. Add the sweet potatoes and heat through, basting them with the pan juices.
