This is a very quick and simple dish, which is great to do if you haven't got much time.

I didn't have a lot of honey so I used half honey and half maple syrup - yummy. I used spare rib steaks rather than chops as I find them less dry and the marbling of fat makes them more tender. I imagine the marinade would be nice with a dash of apple juice instead of orange juice, or maybe a spoonful of apple sauce added.

Quick & simple to prepare using ingredients you'll probably have in the cupboard. Cheers up a boring pork chop & keeps it moist & tender with nice flavours & simple juices. Not amazing enough to do for a dinner party but excellent for mid week dinner. Will def cook this again.

My husband cooked this yesterday and it was yummy. He's not a cook at all, but he found this really quick and easy. He also cook the steak in the oven, not a stand and watch sort of man lol. The steaks were lovely and tender and the kids wanted more. We had mash and veg with it, but think I would of done wild rice with it.
