Pork Chops are considered a heart healthy lean meat. They are affordable and quite easy to prepare on the stove top. One of my all time favorite recipes calls for browning the pork chops in a skillet first with flour & seasonings and then uses orange juice and oranges to create a wonderful savory and sweet sauce.
This recipe is not fast- but allows the pork chops to simmer in their sauce for a good 45 minutes. Allowing time to prep other food for the meal such as potatoes, or rice or your favorite greens.
