I made this because I liked the picture. As it turned out, it was easy and really delicious. Fancy enough for company, easy enough to make any night. My husband said it was the best pork chop he'd ever eaten. The pork chops were so tender and moist and juicy. Great flavor from the citrus. This is a "must make again" recipe. It's definitely going in my permanent file.
