Pork Chops with Orange Maple Sauce

We can’t go past a good barbeque recipe so here’s a great one using pork chops. The trick to cooking great pork chops is to not over cook them so keep an eye on them and don’t get distracted whilst BBQing.


  • 6 Pork Cutlets
  • 1 tbsp oil
  • 1 onion, finely chopped
  • 2 tsps grated orange rind
  • 1/2 cup fresh orange juice
  • 1/2 cup maple syrup
  • 1/4 tsp ground rosemary
  • 2 tsps cornflour
  • 1/4 cup water


  • Heat oil in pan, add onion and sauté for a few minutes until soft.
  • Stir in orange rind, orange juice, maple syrup and rosemary.
  • Pour marinade over pork chops, cover and refrigerate for a couple of hours or overnight.
  • Remove chops from marinade and reserve.
  • Barbeque pork cutlets until tender.
  • Place reserved marinade in pan, and stir in cornflour mixed with water.
  • Stir until the mixture boils and thickens. Serve over pork chops, with a crunchy green salad and crusty bread.
