This baked pork chops recipe adds a sweet and tangy taste by marinating the meat first in an Asian inspired marinade.
The marinade is an easy mix of soy sauce and orange juice.
It also has a bit of honey for sweetness and ginger for tang.
This is mix of flavors that works really well together.
I love dinners that come together easily like this one. A few minutes of preparation, let it sit in the refrigerator for a while and pop it in the oven. An easy dinner recipe at its best.
Here’s a great idea: Roast vegetables along side the chops and create an easy 2 pan oven meal.
Teriyaki Marinated Baked Pork Chops
- 4 - 6 pork loin chops, boneless, or bone-in chops, cut to 1 - 1 1/2 inches thick
- 1/2 cup orange juice
- 1/4 cup soy sauce
- 1/4 cup water
- 2 tablespoons honey
- 1/2 teaspoon fresh ginger, chopped, or ground ginger if you prefer
- Combine all ingredients except pork chops in a non-metallic container (a glass baking dish or zip lock plastic bag both work well). Stir well and add pork. Marinate for 2 hours at room temperature or overnight in the refrigerator.
- Remember, the longer the pork marinates, the better the flavour.
- Preheat oven to 350°F.
- Cook pork for approximately 30 minutes (depending on thickness) or until chops are done.
You can use the leanest chops you can get to lower the fat content if that is a concern for you.
