This recipe was so yummy!! The heat was definitley in the sauce, so it was perfect to have with the kids... I cut up the chops for them and the marinade wasn't really spicy, but when I added it to our chops - WOW!! Not nose running spicy, but enough kick to make you know they were there. What a great taste they had!
Cajun Orange Pork Chops
(recipe found in Taste of Home Healthy Cooking)
1/2 cup orange juice
2 green onions, chopped
2 tablespoons orange marmalade
2 garlic cloves, minced
1 teaspoon cajun seasoning
4 boneless pork loin chops (4 ounces each)
In a small bowl, combine the first five ingredients. Pour 1/3 cup marinade into a large resealable bag; add the pork. Seal bag and turn to coat; refrigerate for 8 hours or overnight. Cover and refrigerate remaining marinade for sauce.
In a small saucepan, bring reserved marinade to a boil. Reduce heat; simmer, uncovered, for 5-7 minutes or until thickened. Keep warm. Coat grill rack with cooking spray before starting the grill. Drain pork chops and discard marinade. Grill, covered, over medium heat for 4-5 minutes on each side or until a meat thermometer reads 160 degrees. Brush with sauce.
