Orange Pork Chops

The whole family loves this one all year around.


  • 4 pork chops

  • 5-6 oranges

  • 2-3 medium onions

  • cajun spice for seasoning

  • salt and pepper for seasoning

  • brown sugar if necessary


  • 1.

    Peel onions, cut in half and cut the halves into slices

  • 2.

    Juice oranges retaining both juice and any pulp

  • 3.

    Prepare Pork Chops by seasoning with a little salt and dusting with cajun spice mix on both sides

  • 4.

    Add to chops to pan with a little oil, and sprinkle sliced onions in over and around chops.

  • 5.

    Once first side is cooked, turn chops pushing onions to the sides of the pan.

  • 6.

    When chops are cooked to your liking, place on dish to rest

  • 7.

    If onions are still undercooked, return to heat and brown/soften a little more before adding orange juice to pan

  • 8.

    Stir orange juice and onions well and taste, if the orange juice seems a little bitter, adjust flavour by adding a little brown sugar according to taste.

  • 9.

    Bring pan to boil and reduce the orange juice/onion mix by at least a 1/3 until a little thickened.

  • 10.

    Serve Chops onto serving plates, returning any juices from resting to the orange and onion sauce.

  • 11.

    Spoon the orange sauce and onion mix over the chops.


Whilst this can be made with bought orange juice and some brown sugar, I generally find real oranges far more tasty and satisfying in this dish
