Orange Glazed Pork and SquashYield: 6 servings (1 pork chop and 3/4 cup squash/apple mixture per serving)

 

Ingredients

  • 1 pound butternut squash
  • 2 medium apples
  • 1 medium orange
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper
  • 1 cup orange juice
  • 2 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 2 teaspoons cornstarch
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 6 pork loin chops sliced 1 inch thick

 

Preparation

  1. Preheat oven to 350 F. Peel squash and cut into cubes; core and cut apples into wedges. Cut orange into 1/4-in.-thick slices. Arrange squash and apples on a foil-lined 15x10x1-inch baking pan coated with cooking spray; sprinkle with ground ginger, place oranges slices on top. Roast 10 minutes.
  2. Meanwhile, in a microwave-safe bowl, mix orange juice, brown sugar, cornstarch, cinnamon and ginger. Microwave, covered, on high, stirring every 30 seconds until thickened, 1-2 minutes. Stir until smooth.
  3. Heat a heavy skillet sprayed with cooking spray and quickly sear pork chops on each side to brown.
  4. Place pork alongside squash mixture; drizzle with orange juice mixture. Roast until a thermometer inserted in pork reads 155 F. and squash and apples are tender, 45-55 minutes longer.
