Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Place pork chops in a casserole dish. Peel, seed and section the clementines.

  • Place half the clementine sections in a small bowl (chop the other half, reserve and refrigerate for later use in salsa). Use a fork to press half the sections into small pieces. Add orange juice and soy sauce then mix together well.

  • Pour mixture over pork chops, being sure that the chops are completely covered with marinade. Cover the dish and refrigerate 4-6 hours or overnight.

  • Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees F. In a small dish, blend onion powder, salt substitute seasoning and chili powder. Remove chops from marinade and season both sides with spice mix.

  • Bake in oven for 22-28 minutes, depending on the thickness of the pork chops.

  • Combine the cucumber, grape tomatoes, bell pepper and lime juice with the remaining clementines to make a fruit and vegetable salsa.

  • Prepare brown rice and spinach according to directions on package.

  • Serve each pork chop with equal amounts of clementine salsa, 1/2 cup of brown rice and 1/2 cup of spinach.
