Teriyaki Pork Chops

Taken from For the Love of Cooking.  Thanks Pam!  This was GREAT!

Teriyaki Pork Chops

4-5 thick cut pork chops
1/2 cup soy sauce
2 tbsp honey
2 tsp sesame oil
3 green onion tops, diced
1 tbsp garlic, chopped finely
2 tsp ground ginger
Juice of one navel orange

Combine all ingredients in a large zip lock bag. Marinate for at least an hour (longer for best results, up to 24 hours).  I love to grill meat but since hubby was working and I hate our ailing grill, I opted to pan fry these. 

Preheat a large fry pan over medium-high heat.  When hot, decrease temperature to medium heat.  Add chops and a tablespoon of marinade over each chop.  Cover and let simmer for about 12 minutes each side (or until cooked through).  I let mine get dark and completely soak up the juices before removing to serve.

I served this with Spicy Cucumber Salad.

The pork chops look delicious and the the cukes as a side is a perfect choice.
