Ingredients

  • 1.5 lbs boneless pork chops, 3/4" thick
  • salt and pepper
  • 2 tbsp vegetable oil
  • 3/4 cup fresh orange juice, strained to remove pulp
  • 3/4 cup packed light brown sugar
  • 1 tbsp Dijon mustard

Instructions

  • Remove pork chops from the refrigerator and season generously with salt and pepper. Let them sit out for 20 minutes to come to room temperature.
  • In a small bowl, whisk together orange juice, brown sugar and Dijon mustard. Set aside.
  • Warm oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Brown pork chops for about 4 minutes per side and check temperature with an instant read thermometer.
  • Once the internal temperature in the thickest part of the meat reaches 145° F, remove from the pan onto a plate. Let rest for 3 minutes before serving.
  • While meat is resting, 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 orange juice mixture, scraping up any browned bits. Let boil, while stirring constantly, about 2 minutes or until thickened.
  • Pour a little bit of glaze over each pork chop and serve immediately.
