Chipotle Orange Glazed Pork Chops
Maple syrup, orange juice concentrate and chipotles in adobo make a sweet and smoky glaze for lean, center-cut pork chops. Remove the chipotle seeds before preparing the glaze — that way, you get more flavor than heat.
|2 tablespoons||maple syrup|
|2 tablespoons||orange juice concentrate|
|1 teaspoon||finely chopped seeded chipotle with 1/2 teaspoon adobo|
|4||(3/4-inch thick) center cut pork loin chops (about 8 ounces each)|
In a small bowl combine the maple syrup, orange juice concentrate and chipotle.
Preheat grill pan. Sprinkle both sides of the chops with salt. Brush 1 side of chops generously with glaze. Place on grill pan glaze side down. Brush other side with glaze. Cook 3 to 4 minutes per side over medium-high heat.
