  • 5 large pork chops (or pork steaks)
  • salt
  • pepper
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 1 and 1/2 cups orange juice (I used 3/4 cup of orange juice concentrate — Sunquick — plus 3/4 c. of water)
  • 1 fresh orange halved and sliced
  • 2 tablespoons grated fresh ginger


  • part the pork chops dry with paper towels. Sprinkle both sides with salt and pepper.
  • Heat the butter in a frying pan. Brown the pork chops to sear.
  • Pour in the orange juice. Add the grated ginger and about two teaspoonfuls of salt. Bring to the boil, lower the heat and simmer for 30 to 35 minutes.
  • Uncover the pan, turn up the heat, add the orange slices and boil until the sauce is reduced and thick. How much you want to reduce the sauce is up to you.
  • To serve, place a pork chop on a plate, garnish with orange slices and drizzle some of the glaze on top. Sprinkle with chopped parsley, if you like.
