I 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.
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!
Make sure you stop by and pick up your Smithfield All Natural Pork Chops at your local Walmart!
