recipe: orange glazed pork chops

orange glazed pork chopswhile i’m not usually a fan of the sweet and savory, i thought my little one would enjoy it. i didn’t have orange marmalade as in the original recipe so i used a peach and apricot jam.

i paired with the pork chops with some sweet potatoes and a healthy portion of stir-fry string beans and bell pepper using leftover glaze.

this meal was a hit for the entire family!
