Honey Orange Pork Chops

Now, I’m not a fan of pork chops. I love other forms of pork, but chops have never been one of those things that I would choose to eat. But, the Man likes them so I cook them. This is another recipe I found while skimming through a cookbook that sounded tasty and was fairly simple to do. Bonus is that I had most of the ingredients already in the house.


  • 4 pork loin chops
  • 1/4 tsp finely shredded orange peel
  • 1/2 cup orange juice
  • 1/4 pineapple juice
  • 2 tbsp soy sauce
  • 1 tbsp honey
  • 1/8 tsp pepper
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 tbsp cornstarch

Combine together orange peel, orange juice, pineapple juice, soy sauce, honey, pepper, and garlic. Mix well and use this as a marinade for your chops. I recommend marinating for a day, but 6 hours will be enough. Place chops on a rack in a broiler pan – save the marinade. Broil for roughly 15 minutes, turning the chops once.

Put the saved marinade in a sauce pan over low heat and add cornstarch. This thickens it to a nice sauce that goes very nicely on not only the chops, but the fries I made with it. *grin* Tasty and may do this marinade again for chicken.
