Ginger Orange Pork Chops

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…

Browning pork chops
Who doesn’t love a good pork chop, browned with olive oil? They looked so yummy, even before all the fun stuff was added. 🙂

Bringing to a boil
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.

Making gravy
A little corn starch and water after taking the pork chops out to make the gravy.

Looking pretty
And dinner is served.
Baked potatoes to go with.

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


  1. 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.
  2. 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.
