Citrus-Topped Pork Chops

Total Time

Prep: 15 min. Cook: 40 min.


6 servings

This is a different way to prepare pork, and my family really enjoys it. The recipe originally had only oranges, but I added the lemons for tartness and color.


  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
  • 6 loin pork chops (1 inch thick)
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 1/4 teaspoon paprika
  • 1/2 cup apple jelly
  • 1 cup orange juice
  • 1/2 teaspoon lemon juice
  • 1 teaspoon ground mustard
  • Dash ground ginger
  • 6 orange slices
  • 6 lemon slices


  1. In a large skillet, heat oil over medium-high. Brown chops on both sides. Season with salt, pepper and paprika. Combine jelly, juices, mustard and ginger. Pour over chops.
  2. Cover and simmer for 15 minutes. Turn chops; cover and simmer 15 minutes longer. Top each chop with an orange and lemon slice. Cover and cook 6-8 minutes more or until juices run clear.

    I am in love with this recipe, but my husband isn't as crazy about it because it is a little on the sweet side. Since first trying this recipe, we have made it at least once a month.
