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.
