Orange-Sesame Pork Chops with Teriyaki Whole-Wheat Noodles

I am doing more menu planning with I'm an Organizing Junkie and finding more deals at Pick N Save for $5 Dinners and putting them together with great recipes:-)

I don't know how this happened but all I have is a Fun Run and a Pampered Chef party. I have to be missing something!

Thank goodness Pick N Save is helping me out with my menu planning! They have Whole Boneless Pork Loin on sale for $1.99/lb. (normally $4.79/lb.)I bought a bunch to make Rachael Ray's Orange-Sesame Pork Chops with Teriyaki Whole-Wheat Noodles. Check out the recipe below:-)

Here is everything that I am serving this week:

Monday: Spaghetti (Cleaning Day)

Tuesday: Orange-Sesame Pork Chops with Teriyaki Whole-Wheat Noodles (See Reicpe Below) (Fun Run)

Wednesday: Bean Night (Pampered Chef Party)

Thursday: Leftovers

Friday: Eat Out

Orange-Sesame Pork Chops with Teriyaki Whole-Wheat NoodlesIngredients
1 lb whole-wheat or whole-grain spaghetti
5 Tbs vegetable or light oil
5 boneless pork loin chop 1 1/2-inches thick
Freshly ground black pepper
3 Tbs orange marmalade
6 Tbs teriyaki sauce
1 tsp sesame oil
1 bunch scallions, thinly sliced on an angle
1 cup shelled, frozen edamame
1 Tbs black sesame seeds or toasted sesame seeds, optional

1. Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil for pasta, and cook pasta to al dente.

2. While pasta cooks, heat 2 tablespoons oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Season chops with salt and pepper and cook 6 minutes on the first side, 4 to 5 on the second. Remove chops to a plate and reserve, cover with foil. Add 3 tablespoons orange marmalade, a couple tablespoons teriyaki sauce and a 1/4 cup of water to the pan, bring the sauce to a bubble and combine 1 minute, stir in sesame oil remove from heat.

3. While the chop cooks, heat a second skillet with 3 tablespoons oil over medium high heat. Stir-fry the scallions and edamame a couple of minutes. Drain pasta and toss with scallions and edamame and remaining teriyaki sauce, about 1/4 cup. Sprinkle noodles with sesame seeds, if desired.

4. Slice pork or leave chop whole and top with orange-sesame glaze. Serve teriyaki noodles alongside.

I love that the noodles are a little bit different to make the recipe a little more jazzy. :)
