Triple Orange Glazed Pork Chops

This is one I'd seen somewhere, but billed as "Double Orange Glazed". Well, I added the mandarin oranges and bumped the count up to three. I also added a few extras at the end to give it my own spin. I enjoyed this with white rice and roasted cauliflower and carrots, over which I sprinkled some blue cheese crumbles. It was quite the orange and white night!

Ingredients Nutrition

Directions

  1. In a small bowl, mix together the orange juice and marmalade.
  2. Heat the butter and olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Season the pork chops with the salt and pepper. Add the chops and cook, turning once, until just cooked through, 6 to 8 minutes total. Transfer the chops to a platter and cover loosely with aluminum foil.
  3. Pour off all but 3 tablespoons of drippings from the skillet and add the orange juice mixture. Raise the heat to medium-high and stir, scraping up the brown bits on the bottom of the pan, until the sauce is reduced and slightly syrupy, 6 to 8 minutes. Add the cayenne pepper to taste, then the lime zest; check for seasonings and adjust as necessary. Return the pork chops to the pan, reduce the heat to medium, and turn the pork chops a few times in the sauce. Remove the chops and add the mandarin oranges at the very last minute, just to warm them. If left in too long they値l simply dissolve.
  4. Transfer the chops to serving dishes, drizzle with the sauce, and top with toasted coconut and parsley.

This came out even better than it sounded! It was not difficult. I added the toasted coconut to the very top after plating which made it very pretty. Check it out: http://www.mynewlywedcookingadventures.com/2013/04/foodcoms-triple-orange-glazed-pork-chops.html
