Recipe: Cranberry Orange Glazed Pork Chops #SmithfieldPork

PorkChops1I don’t know about you, but it’s always so hard for me to come up with really GREAT pork chop recipes. Sure you can bread them and bake them, Cook them up with some gravy, but bleh…those are the days of the past. I’ve been experimenting with different types of EASY but fun pork chop recipes and so far my family have really loved what I have came up with. I posted last week my pork chop recipe and it was a new one I made up that was fabulous as well, Sage, Butter, and Garlic Pork Chops.

First off I let me tell you about these delicious pork chops, Smithfield All Natural Pork Chops they’re available at Walmart. They are a very tender cut of meat without added steroids, hormones, or artificial ingredients. These are my go to brand when I’m purchasing pork chops, and I love that they’re so easy to pick up while I’m shopping at Walmart. Not to mention, they’re a great price to boot.


Package of Smithfield All Natural Boneless Pork Chops (You can use bone in, but I prefer boneless)
Zest of half of an orange
1 can of Whole Berry Cranberry Sauce
1/2 cup of orange juice, you can use fresh squeezed or any store bought
Salt and Pepper
1 Tablespoon of oil, canola, vegetable, coconut, etc.


In a sauce pan pour in your cranberry sauce, half a cup of orange juice, and your orange zest.

Bring this to a boil and then simmer for approximately 30 min to reduce. Stirring every 5 min or so. (Do not cover)
Pre-heat your oven to 350 degrees.
In a pan on the stove, get it nice and hot with your oil in it so you can sear your pork chops.
You will not be cooking these through, just getting a nice color on them.
While you’re waiting on your pan to get hot, blot your pork chops with paper towels to dry them, then season with salt and pepper on both sides.
I like to press the salt and pepper in with my hands, but that’s because I use fresh ground and it sticks better.
Cook on both sides for 2-3 minutes to get a nice sear that will be a golden brown.

Take out of the pan and place on a baking sheet.
Next, take some of your reduced sauce out and put it in a bowl to baste your pork chops with, that way you don’t cross contaminate your sauce with uncooked pork.
Once on a baking sheet, baste your pork chops with a little bit of the cranberry orange sauce.
Bake for 5 minutes at 350.

Remove from the oven, and baste your pork chops again.
Bake for 5 minutes.
Remove from oven and let set for 5 minutes before serving.
Top with more of your sauce that’s in your pan (don’t use the sauce you took out to baste with!).


Enjoy! These are super great paired with stuffing and asparagus and some rolls!

  44. YUMMY! This Pork Chop with Orange Cranberry Glaze Looks Amazing and Here’s the Funny Part: “I Don’t Even Like Pork Chops!” I Haven’t Ever Really Liked Pork but These Do Look Delicious and I Bet You Could Even Shake Things Up By Using Chicken Instead of Pork Chops & Even Change the Glaze to a Strawberry Glaze on the Chicken! That’s Why I Love Recipes Like This, if You are Out of a Certain Ingredient You Could Easily Substitute it for Another One! It’s Really Trial & Error and Maybe You Will Even End Up Creating a Masterpiece by Accident (LOL) That’s Where Some of My Best Recipes Come From, By Experimenting with What I Have on Hand! I Think I am Going to Try This Recipe Though b/c it Does Look Good! Great Recipe Indeed! Have a Blessed Day & Thanks, Jana

  80. I really like this recipe. I have always been a fan of cranberries and pork. It is an excellent combo. I have made something like this but not with the orange in it. I will have to try it.
