Mandarin Orange Boneless Pork Chops

Tuesday, March 20, 2018
Mandarin Orange Pork Chops is a sweet fork-tender pork that has a citrus flavor that compliments these boneless pork medallions.


I have always loved just apples with my pork chops, but this really brings a fresh tropical taste to these thick juicy chops and put the flavors over the top!


Mandarin oranges are plentiful here in Florida and whether you use fresh or canned, they still are a delightful meal.

Even if you're not a pork lover, you still can make this with chicken or shrimp!

Summertime is a fun inspiration to make this delicious pork with mandarin oranges.


I love the sweetness of citrus in mandarin oranges.


It's a great change from making a barbecue sauce, we eat often in the South.


The citrus also tenderizes the meat while it's cooking from the acidic juices.
