How to Bake Teriyaki Glazed Pork Chops With Rice

Save

Teriyaki sauce is a thick, sweet sauce that originated in Japanese cuisine. Consisting of garlic, ginger, soy sauce and a sweet flavoring such as honey, the sauce can be used as a garnish, condiment or meat marinade. Coating pork chops with teriyaki sauce helps to lock in moisture that's further protected by baking, rather than frying. The pork chops should be the star of the dish, so keep the sauce light and serve on a bed of rice.

Things You'll Need

  • 6 pork chops
  • 1/2 cup orange juice
  • 1/4 cup soy sauce
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 1 tbsp. chili powder
  • 2 tbsps. honey
  • 1/2 tsp. ground ginger
  • Plastic wrap
  • 1 box of wild rice
  • 1 lemon, sliced into wedges
  • Place the pork chops in a single layer in a glass baking dish. Combine the orange juice, soy sauce, water, chili powder, honey and ground ginger in a small bowl. Pour over the chops, cover the dish with a plastic wrap and leave in the refrigerator overnight to marinate.

  • Heat the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Place the baking dish in the oven and bake for 30 minutes. Prepare the rice according to the instructions on the package while the pork chops cook.

  • Serve pork chops on a bed of wild rice with a wedge of lemon for garnish.

Tips & Warnings

  • Already made teriyaki sauce can be purchased at the supermarket but homemade sauce contains fewer preservatives.
  • Use a low sodium soy sauce if you need to watch your sodium intake.
