Servings: 4
Prep Time: 10 min
Cook Time: 25 min
Difficulty: Easy

Ingredients Add to grocery list

1 cup freshly squeezed orange juice
1/3 cup orange marmalade
3 tablespoons unsalted butter
4 tablespoons vegetable oil
4 (8-ounce) center-cut, bone-in pork loin chops, 1/2-inch thick
1 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper





In a small bowl, mix together the orange juice and marmalade.

Heat the butter and vegetable oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Season the pork chops with the salt and pepper. Add the chops and cook, turning once, until just cooked through, 6 to 8 minutes total. Transfer the chops to a platter and cover loosely with aluminum foil.

Pour off all but 3 tablespoons of drippings from the skillet and add the orange juice mixture. Raise the heat to medium-high and stir, scraping up the brown bits on the bottom of the pan, until the sauce is reduced and slightly syrupy, 6 to 8 minutes. Return the pork chops to the pan, reduce the heat to medium, and cook, turning the pork chops a few times in the sauce.

Transfer the chops to serving dishes and drizzle with some of the sauce. Pour the remaining sauce into a bowl and serve alongside the chops.

I have fixed these chops three tomes before and with all my cooking it seems to get better every time.

Paula, We had this last night. My wife doesn't normally like pork, because it is normally dry, or not done. She loved this dish. The flavor, the sauce, everything about this. We had Mac and cheese and Garlic Parmasean Broccoli with this dish.

is the cook time of 25 min the total time for the skillet on the stove or is it the cook time for the chops after returning them to the pan?

My husband thinks I am the best ever at! We love the sweet and sour effect of this recipe.

These were great. My chops were a little thick so after browining them and pouring off the extra fat I added the orange mixture to the pan and simmered the chops for a little more time with a lid on the pan. The end result was CRAZY GOOD!
