Pork Chops with Orange-Soy Sauce

Submitted by: NANCYANNIE1

Introduction

These pork chops are delicious and EASY to make! Out of all of my low-cal recipes this is one of my favorites! Sauce is perfect over rice or potatoe. Be sure to use bone-in chops so that they are moist. These pork chops are delicious and EASY to make! Out of all of my low-cal recipes this is one of my favorites!

  • I made this tonight. I really enjoyed it. I did not heat up the oven for 5 minutes to 400 degrees. I just cooked them a little longer in the pan. My husband thought it was a little salty. I cut the sauce ingredients in half because I only made 2 chops. Nexttime I would consider cutting the soy - 11/19/12

  • I made these pork chops the first night of my diet. The whole family liked them..They were easy to make and it was the first time my pork chops weren't dry! They are very moist :) - 6/14/12

  • This was a very nice choice for a change of pace. I used boneless tender pork loins with all the fat trimmed. I also placed the amalgam of ingredients over the tenderloins in the oven to create a carmelized glaze. The outcome was spectacular but the original recipe still deserves the recognition. - 1/24/11
