6 bone-in pork loin chops (1 inch thick and 7 ounces each)
Salt and pepper to taste
1 cup orange marmalade
2 tablespoons orange juice
1 tablespoon prepared mustard
1/2 teaspoon ground ginger
Orange slices and fresh rosemary, optional
In a large saucepan, saute the barley, onion and celery in 3 tablespoons butter until barley is golden brown and vegetables are tender. Add garlic; cook 1 minuet longer. Stir in the broth, orange juice, zest and rosemary; bring to a boil. Reduce heat; cover and simmer for 35 minutes or until barley is partially cooked. Add pecans.
Transfer to a greased 13x9-in. baking dish. In a large skillet, brown pork chops on both sides in remaining butter. Sprinkle with salt and pepper. Arrange over barley mixture.
Combine glaze ingredients; brush half over chops. Cover and bake at 350° for 45 minutes. Uncover; brush with remaining glaze. Bake 15 minutes longer or until a thermometer reads 160°. Garnish with orange and rosemary if desired.
