Pork Chops With Caramelized Orange Sauce

"This is a tasty way to enjoy pork chops and a nice combination of sweet and savory flavors. The pork chops are seasoned with savory spices and simmered in an orange sauce, which caramelizes and thickens into a sticky indulgence. It is best served over hot, cooked rice with sauce spooned over all."

Ready In:




  • Drizzle olive oil into a medium skillet over medium-high heat.
  • Meanwhile, season pork chops with paprika, garlic powder, salt and pepper.
  • Once oil in skillet is glistening, brown pork chops on both sides.
  • In a small bowl, whisk together orange juice, brown sugar, orange marmalade and apple cider vinegar.
  • Lower skillet heat to medium-low. Pour liquid mixture over chops and cover skillet. Simmer for 10-15 minutes, occasionally flipping chops and scraping the bottom of the skillet with a wooden spoon to keep them from burning or sticking.

  1. Not overly sweet, and it went great with scalloped potatoes.


<p>My name is Rebecca, but my family and friends call me Becky. I am&nbsp;33 years old and live in Rochester, New York, USA. I am a life-long resident of Western New York and can't say as I'd ever want to live anywhere else. I grew up on a small dairy farm in rural Western New York and love country living. Although my husband and I live in a suburb right now, we hope someday to move back to our roots and live a peaceful country life. <br /><br />My husband and I have been married for 10 years.&nbsp; We have a beautiful 5-year-old&nbsp;daughter and a 3-year-old&nbsp;son.&nbsp;&nbsp;I am amazed at how quickly our kids are&nbsp;growing and developing.&nbsp; I read a lot about and hold my own personal skepticism regarding the affects of additives such as&nbsp;preservatives,&nbsp;hormones, artificial colorings, artificial sweeteners, caffeine, allergens, etc.&nbsp; With the increasing number of children and adults with food allergies, I am suspicious that the last century&nbsp;of our nation's food industry improvements have contributed.&nbsp; I'm doing the best I can to protect my family&nbsp;from the risks, but it is difficult to avoid every additive.&nbsp; I have friends and family with food allergies and know how difficult it is to cope with food restrictions. I enjoy the challenge of&nbsp;cooking for those with food allergies but can't imagine making it an every-day affair.</p> 8727502"
