Mr. Food: Marmalade Dijon Pork Chops

What You’ll Need

  • 1 (12-ounce) jar orange marmalade
  • 1/4 cup orange juice
  • 3 tablespoons Dijon-style mustard
  • 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • 4 pork loin chops (1 to 2 pounds total)
  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil

What to Do

  1. In a medium bowl, combine marmalade, orange juice, and mustard; mix well and set aside.
  2. In a shallow dish, combine flour, salt, and pepper; mix well. Coat pork chops with seasoned flour.
  3. In a large deep skillet over medium-high heat, heat oil. Add pork chops and brown 3 to 4 minutes per side. Reduce heat to low, then pour marmalade sauce over top, cover, and simmer 5 minutes. Uncover and simmer an additional 5 to 7 minutes, or until sauce is thickened and pork chops are no longer pink. Serve with sauce spooned over chops.
