Pork Chops With Soy-Orange Pan Sauce Recipe

Pork Chops Recipe - awesome pan sauce with fresh squeezed OJ and soy sauce

WHAT YOU NEED:

  • 3⁄4 c. freshly squeezed orange juice (I used an electric citrus juicer to make a bunch of OJ and then saved the rest for later)
  • 2 Tbs. soy sauce
  • 1 tsp. sugar
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • 1⁄4 tsp. black pepper
  • 2 Tbs. butter
  • 2 Tbs. vegetable or canola oil
  • 8 bone-in pork chops

WHAT YOU DO:

Combine juice with soy sauce, sugar, garlic, and pepper in a gallon-size resealable bag. Set aside.

Using a 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 butter and oil in a large skillet until hot. Add the chops a few at a time, in a single layer and saute over high heat for 3 minutes on each side, browning them well. Repeat with all chops.

Reduce heat to low and pour reserved marinade over the chops. Cook until done, approximately 8-10 additional minutes, or until the internal temperature reaches 145°F. Remove chops to a heated platter. Reduce marinade in the skillet to 1/3 cup. Pour over the cooked chops and serve immediately.
