I found this recipe in a Taste of Home Cooking for Two magazine quite some time ago. I made them something like 6 years ago, they were so tasty…I wanted to make them again.
How could I forget how much I love the smell of ginger?!
I am going to have find a use for what is left…any ideas?? I guess that is what Pinterest is for…
Here is the all the fun stuff. A little orange juice, some ginger root, and 2 garlic cloves. All just simmering together. It started to really smell good at this point, I promise.
Everyone said they liked it, I guess I won’t argue since they came out tasting as good as I remember. This is definitely one dish I will come back to.
I am sure you can find this on the Cooking for Two website.
Here is the unaltered recipe. I really don’t know the measurements we used, we just measured out what was in the recipe then added extra for the 3 of us.
- 2 oz bone in pork loin chops (7 each)
- 2 tsp olive oil
- 1/8 tsp salt
- 1/8 tsp pepper
- 3/4 Cup orange juice
- 2 tsp minced fresh ginger root
- 2 garlic cloves, minced
- 2 tsp cornstarch
- 1 Tbsp water
- In a large skillet, brown pork chops in oil. Sprinkle both sides with salt and pepper. Combine the orange juice, ginger and garlic; pour over chops. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat; cover and simmer for 7 8 minutes or until meat juices run clear. Remove chops and keep warm.
- Combine cornstarch and water until smooth; stir into pan juices. Bring to a boil; cook and stir for 2 minutes or until thickened. Serve over pork chops.
