If you made these pork chops on the stovetop it would only take 15 minutes so it’s not exactly the kind of recipe I’d normally adapt for solar cooking. But I use frozen chops straight from the freezer without browning them first. Bake a couple of sweet potatoes alongside for a perfect side dish.

Solar Braised Orange Pork Chops


4 frozen 1/2-inch-thick pork chops

Salt and pepper to taste

1 garlic clove, minced

1/2 cup fresh orange juice

1/4 cup dry white wine

1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice


Set Global Sun Oven out to preheat.

Place pork chops in one layer in a pot. Season with salt and pepper. Add garlic, orange juice, wine, and lemon juice. Cover and cook in Sun Oven until meat is tender, about 1 hour. Serve with cooking juices.
