Five ingredients is all you need to make your family a simple and healthy dinner on a busy night. With our 5-Ingredient Orange Glazed Pork Chops you can make your family an easy dinner with the nutritional benefits of Florida Orange Juice.
- ¾ cup (180 ml) Florida Orange Juice
- 1 ½ lb. boneless pork chops, ¾ in. thick
- 2 tbsp. vegetable oil
- ¾ cup packed light brown sugar
- 1 tbsp. Dijon mustard
- Salt and pepper for seasoning
Season pork chops generously with salt and pepper. Let seasoned pork chops sit for 20 minutes or until room temperature.
In a small bowl, whisk together Florida Orange Juice, brown sugar and Dijon mustard. Set aside.
Warm oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Brown pork chops for about four minutes per side.
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
Pour out any excess oil from the pan, but do not wipe it clean.
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.
Pour a little bit of glaze over each pork chop and serve immediately.
