Directions

  1. Put the water, lemon or orange juice, and spices in a deep skillet with a lid. Mix together. Bring mixture to a soft boil.
  2. Place a cooling rack over the skillet, and place pork chops on cooling rack to suspend the chops over the boiling citrus water. Place lid over chops and skillet to keep in most of the steam. Flip pork chops after 6 to 8 minutes, and continue cooking for another 10 to 15 minutes or until done.

The smell was good, but after cooking it the minimum suggested amount of time, it was slightly tough, and didn't have much of a citrus or spice taste. Also, the water all boiled away, leaving me with a mess of burned spices at the bottom of the pot. I would definitely watch this more closely next time, and find some type of sauce or marinade for it.

This dish smelled so good while it was cooking! The end result is an ok tasting pork chop that doesn't look very good, too pale. You will need something to go with it. I served these with Citrus Salsa(from Splenda) that I found on this site. That made the dish.

Having read other reviews about the pork being bland or lacking flavor I decided to try marinating the pork in the steaming liquid before cooking. I marinated it for about 3 hours. It did improve the appearance but the flavor was still not intense enough. The pork definitely needs a sauce or salsa to go with it. I did not try the Citus Salsa one other reviewer used but the next time I will.
