Pork Chops w/Mandarin Orange Salsa

Prep Time: 45 minsServings: 4


Instructions: Place pork chops in casserole dish. Peel, seed, and section the clementines. Place half of 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 and 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°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 the 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, ½ cup of brown rice and ½ cup of spinach.

Each serving provides: An excellent source of vitamin A, vitamin C, folate, calcium, magnesium, potassium and fiber.
