Jazz up plain pork chops with this delicious but easy combination of orange juice, wine and tarragon.
We thought these were really good. For a more intense orange flavor, I did take 2c of orange juice & a pat of butter, and reduced it down to 1/2c. I then added the 2T chardonnay to my OJ reduction and continued the recipe as written, though with my already-thick reduction sauce, I did not have to add the cornstarch/water step. Served with green beans, and steamed brown basmati rice with a bit of butter, chardonnay, and drizzled with a some of the orange sauce. Thanks for the great recipe, HAC3! - 24 Oct 2007 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
I used bone in pork chops and it turned out fine. I did the orange reduction versus the cornstarh thickening method and it was delicious! It took a little extra time, but well worth it IMO. - 29 Jul 2008 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
This very simple recipe is lovely. I read other review and agree that more orange juice is key (a added a cup) and I used fresh tarragon (about 2 teaspoons.) As the sauce was thickening, a dash of cayenne pepper, a teaspoon of orange zest and a 1/2 tsp of sugar really enhanced the favor. It was a hit -- thanks! - 12 Feb 2009 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
