Orange Glazed Pork Chops

Orange Glazed Pork Chops


  • ⅓ cup orange juice
  • ⅓ cup soy sauce
  • 4 tsp brown sugar
  • ¾ tsp ground ginger
  • 2 cloves garlic

3 pork chops (5oz each)

2 tbsp vegetable oil

¾ cup orange juice

1 tbsp Dijon mustard

¾ cup brown sugar

½ tsp salt

Mix marinade ingredients in a sealable bag or flat container. Add pork chops and allow to marinate in the refrigerator overnight, turning occasionally.

Before cooking, remove pork chops from the refrigerator. Remove from marinade, pat dry and allow to sit at room temperature for 30 minutes.

Heat oil in a skillet over medium heat. Place pork chops in a skillet and allow to cook until the internal temperature reaches 140℉, turning once (4-8 minutes, depending on thickness). Remove from the pan and cover to keep warm.

Mix orange juice, mustard, brown sugar and salt in a small bowl. Add to pan and cook over medium-high heat until thickened, about two minutes, stirring constantly.

Pour orange glaze over pork chops and serve immediately.

  1. Hi Cynthia. Very interesting recipe. I never connected in my kitchen pork with fruits so this will be something new for me and my family. Looking forward to test it in practice, looks tasty and easy to prepare. And thanks for hack, freezing juice in cube tray sounds brilliant and hopefully it will help me not to wast too much food.

    1. The first time I used fruit in a main course dish was an apple and chicken skillet.  My family loved it so much that I’ve been experimenting ever since!
