Pork Chop with Orange and Parsley

Pork Chop with Orange and Parsley

Recipe source : Adapted from Martha Stewart

My son, YS,  loves the fruity flavour of this pork chop. However, he refrained from eating the oranges even though I had told him the orange segments were just stirred in after the sauce was cooked. To him oranges are best eaten fresh. Me? I love the pork chops and the oranges were simply scrumptious! 

I made some changes to the original recipe. I added salt and sugar to the sauce as I found it bland and slightly too sour for my liking. After browning the pork chops, I added water to simmer them for about 10 minutes to ensure the thick pork chops were thoroughly cooked.


1 tbsp vegetable oil
4 pork chops ( 1 inch thick)
Coarse salt and ground pepper
2 strips orange zest
1/2 cup orange juice
2 oranges, remove peel and pith and separate into segments
1/4 cup parsley leaves, chopped


1.  In a large skillet, heat oil over medium heat. Season pork with salt and pepper and cook until brown.
2.  Lower heat and pour in about 1 cup of water and cover with a lid. Allow the pork pieces to simmer for about 10 minutes or until dry. Transfer to a plate.
3.  Add orange juice and zest to the skillet. Add 1/2 tsp of salt and 1 tsp of sugar to taste.
4.  Remove from heat and add in the orange segments. Stir to mix well.
5.  Spoon the orange sauce and orange segments over the pork chops.
6.  Top with chopped parsley.

  1. Hi Doris,

    Your son is so cute... not eating orange that is cooked. I guess every individual has our own preferences.

    Nevertheless, these pork chops with orange looks delicious!


  2. Hello Doris, Thank you very much for your support to LTU. Mmm... your pork chops with oranges look very delicious. I definitely can eat more ... hahaa

  3. Hi Doris,
    Lovely dish! It has been a while since I last made any pork chop! Adding the oranges is a wonderful addition and must be very orangy fragrant!

  4. Love the flavours of this dish. Orange and pork must go so well together.
