DIRECTIONS

  • Combine orange juice with soy sauce, sugar, garlic, pepper, and thyme in a 1 gallon zipper bag. Set aside.
  • With a very sharp knife, score the pork chops 1/8 inch deep in a criss-cross pattern on each side. Add to marinade bag, seal, and let sit at least 30 minutes.
  • Remove pork chops and retain marinade.
  • Heat the butter and oil in a large heavy skillet until hot. Add the chops in a single layer and saute over high heat for 3 minutes on each side, browning them well. (You may need to do these in batches, or in two skillets. I usually do this using the grill method below.).
  • Reduce heat to low and poir reserved marinade over the chops. Cook until done, about 8-10 minutes longer. Remove chops to a heated platter. Reduce the marinade in the skillet to 1/3 cup. Pour over the cooked chops and serve immediately.
  • GRILL METHOD: Also excellent grilled! Reduce the marinade separateley in a saucepan, then pour over the chops after removing from grill.
