Number of Servings: 4


    4 bone-in rib or center-cut pork chops,1/2 to 3/4 inch thick
    1 tsp, plus 1 tbsp olive oil
    2 garlic cloves, minced
    3/4 cup orange juice
    1 tsp ground cumin
    1/2 tsp sugar
    1/8 tsp red pepper flakes
    Salt and pepper


Rub each chop with 1/4 tsp oil and sprinkle with salt, pepper, and cumin. Sprinkle one side of each chop with1/8 tsp sugar.
Place chops, sugared side down, in large nonstick skillet and press meat into pan. Cook, without moving, over medium heat until lightly browned, 6 to 9 minutes. Turn chops, reduce heat to low, cover, and cook until center of chops registers 145-150 degrees on instant-read thermometer, 3 to 6 minutes. Transfer chops to platter, tent with foil, and let rest while making sauce.

Add remaining tbsp oil, garlic, and pepper flakes to empty pan and cook over medium heat until fragrant, about 30 seconds. Add juice and simmer until slightly thickened, about 5 minutes. Tip accumulated juices from platter with chops into skillet, cook 1 minute, season with salt and pepper, and pour sauce over chops.

Serves 4.

  • Incredible!
    My family loved it. The bone-in pork chops came out very tender. Thanks for the detailing the recipe steps. The only change I made was I did not put in red pepper. It was easy to make and very tasty. - 9/24/19
