Orange Juiced Pork Chops

Once again, the pork chop recipe caught my eye... I thought that this sounded a little bit different, definitely easy and would feed a lot of people. My mind has been on trying to figure out what we are having for Christmas Eve dinner, which is usually something that I can throw in the crockpot before we leave for church, and this seemed to fit the bill... So, this was my trial run and it was a hit at our house! The pork chops had a different taste to them but were still delicious... Josh was not expecting the sweetness of the orange juice though so he was a little put off at first - by the end of the meal he was sold too! Guess next time I need to warn him in advance what we are eating so he knows what to expect! :)

Orange Juiced Pork Chops
(recipe found in A.C.C. cookbook)

1 (12 ounces) can frozen orange juice, undiluted
1 cup brown sugar, packed
2 teaspoons soy sauce
4 teaspoons cornstarch
1 teaspoon garlic powder
12 (1" thick) boneless center cut pork chops

Combine all ingredients, except the meat, in the crockpot. Stir well. Add the meat and stir well to coat. Cover and cook on low 6-8 hours or high 3-4 hours.
