Simple Orange Ginger Pork Chops {30 Minute Meal}

I'm so sad this picture is a little fuzzy, because the colors on this plate were so beautiful, this photo doesn't do it justice ;( Trust me though, when I say these pork chops are beyond scrumptious! Not only do they taste amazing, but the glaze and marinade are SO easy to throw together you will be shocked at the simplicity--yet, complexity of flavors of this dish. I love the citrusy flavors with the traditional Asian sesame and ginger. This meal is a fabulous choice on a busy night when you can quickly throw the marinade together in the morning and then grill it up a few minutes before you need to eat. Serve with some Ham Fried Rice (or regular rice) and a side of vegetables and you have a great dinner solution to a busy weeknight. Hope you love!



Orange Ginger Pork Chops

Zest and juice of 2 oranges
1 tsp. sesame oil
1/4 cup canola oil
1 inch ginger, grated
1/4 cup soy sauce
2 garlic cloves
1/4 cup honey
5-6 boneless pork chops
2-3 Tbs. brown sugar
Sesame seeds (optional garnish)
Green onions, sliced (optional garnish)

In a bowl, whisk together all of the marinade ingredients (minus the brown sugar, sesame seeds and green onions). Once the marinade is combined, reserve 1/2 of the marinade and pour the other portion onto the pork chops, which can be stored in a large bowl or a Ziploc gallon bag. Cover the pork chops and marinade for several hours. When ready to serve the pork chops, heat a grill to medium-high heat. Grill the pork chops until they are slightly pink in the center, but fully cooked. Set aside the pork chops while you make the glaze. With the reserved marinade, pour into a small sauce pan and add a couple tablespoons of brown sugar and bring the marinade to a boil. Once the marinade begins to thicken, remove from the heat (if it gets too thick, add a little more orange juice to the sauce  to loosen it up). Pour the glaze over the pork chops to coat. Garnish with some sesame seeds, green onion slices and a slice of orange (optional). Serve with rice.
