There’s something about pairing pork chops with tangy fruit sauces. Ridiculously delicious!
You are going to go bananas over this meal! Seriously, it’s phenomenal.
We polished our plates and my oldest (the resident pork chop lover) wanted thirds! (Growth spurt + amazing meal = I can see the future and I’m going broke when they’re all teenagers!)
Also, this sauce/marinade/topping would be AMAZING with chicken breasts!
