Ingredients

¾ cup 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

 

Directions

  1. Season pork chops generously with salt and pepper. Let seasoned pork chops sit for 20 minutes or until room temperature.
  2. In a small bowl, whisk together Florida Orange Juice, brown sugar, and Dijon mustard. Set aside.
  3. Warm oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Brown pork chops for about four minutes per side.
  4. Once the internal temperature in the thickest part of the meat reaches 140°F, remove from the pan and place on a plate. Cover loosely with foil. The meat will continue to cook while resting and get to the necessary 145°F for consumption.
  5. Pour out any excess oil from the pan, but do not wipe it clean.
  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.
  7. Pour a little bit of glaze over each pork chop and serve immediately.
