Orange-Sauced Pork Chops with Quinoa
Preheat broiler. In a small saucepan combine broth and the 1/3 cup orange juice. Bring to boiling. Slowly add the quinoa and return to boiling; reduce heat. Simmer, covered, for 10 to 15 minutes or until most of the liquid is absorbed and quinoa is tender. Stir in green onion and orange peel.Advertisement
Meanwhile, place pork chops on unheated rack of a foil-lined broiler pan. Broil 3 to 4 inches from the heat for 9 to 10 minutes or until done (150 degrees F), turning once halfway through broiling time. Let stand 3 minutes before serving.
For sauce, in another small saucepan stir together orange marmalade, the 1 tablespoon orange juice, the soy sauce and ginger. Cook and stir until boiling. Serve sauce with chops and quinoa mixture.
