Servings: 4 Prep 10 mins Cook 24 mins

Ingredients

  • 3 navel oranges
  • 4 teaspoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • 4 thick top loin boneless pork chops, fat trimmed (about 1-1/2 pounds total)
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • 3/4 cup orange juice
  • 1 tablespoon dark-brown sugar
  • 1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
  • 1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
  • 2 teaspoons cornstarch mixed with 2 teaspoons water
  • Chopped fresh parsley

Make It

1. Cut peel from oranges with a knife. Hold oranges over a bowl to catch any juice; cut between membranes to remove sections.

2. Heat oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Brown pork well, about 4 minutes per side, sprinkling with salt and pepper. Top pork with orange sections; add any juice from bowl to pan. Cover and cook over medium-low heat about 10 minutes or until cooked through. Meanwhile, whisk orange juice, dark-brown sugar, mustard and Worcestershire sauce. Remove pork with orange sections to plate; keep warm.

3. Add orange juice mixture to liquid in pan and cook 5 minutes over medium heat. Stir in cornstarch mixture until thickened, a minute or so. Return pork to pan to reheat as needed. Garnish with parsley.
