Tasty Tuesday: Honey-Orange Pork Chops

We tried this recipe out tonight and it was tasty! Not only was it yummy but it was very, very easy to make. Everyone (even the kids) loved it. My hubby rated it an 8 (on a scale from 1-10).

Honey-Orange Pork Chops

1/4 teaspoon finely shredded orange peel
1/2 cup orange juice
1/4 cup pineapple juice
2 tablespoons soy sauce
1 tablespoon honey
1/8 tsp pepper
2 cloves garlic, minced
4 pork loin chops (3/4 inch thick) (we doubled the pork chops with the same amount of sauce and it worked just fine...would have wanted to double the sauce if we had more adults, though)
1 tablespoon cornstarch

Trim fat from chops. For marinade, in a shallow baking dish combine orange peel, orange juice, pineapple juice, soy sauce, honey, pepper, and garlic. Add meat, turning to coat. Cover; marinate in the refrigerator 6 to 24 hours, turning once (I made it in the morning and marinated it all day). Remove meat from marinade, reserving marinade. Grill pork chops. Transfer marinade to a saucepan. Stir in cornstarch. Cook and stir till thickened and bubbly. Cook and stir 2 minutes more.

We had the pork chops with rice (and steamed carrots and grean beans) so the sauce was yummy both on the chops and the rice. The kids liked the pork chops without the sauce.
