  • 2 tbsp. vegetable oil
  • ¾ cup packed light brown sugar
  • 1 tbsp. Dijon mustard
  • Salt and pepper for seasoning

Preparation

5-Ingredient Orange Glazed Pork Chops
Step 1:

Season pork chops generously with salt and pepper. Let seasoned pork chops sit for 20 minutes or until room temperature.

Step 2:

In a small bowl, whisk together Florida Orange Juice, brown sugar and Dijon mustard. Set aside.

Step 3:

Warm oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Brown pork chops for about four minutes per side.

Step 4:

Once the internal temperature in the thickest part of the meat reaches 140°F, remove from the pan and place on plate. Cover loosely with foil. The meat will continue to cook while resting and get to the necessary 145°F for consumption

Step 5:

Pour out any excess oil from the pan, but do not wipe it clean.

Step 6:

Place pan back on medium-high heat and deglaze the pan with the Florida Orange Juice mixture, scraping up any browned bits. Let boil, while stirring constantly, about two minutes or until thickened.

Step 7:

Pour a little bit of glaze over each pork chop and serve immediately.
