Enjoy my Tangerine Pork Chops for dinner tonight-
I know it’s not easy coming up with creative new dishes for your families dinner table, and that’s why I keep cooking up deliciousness! Pork is still one of the most economical cuts of meat out there, and a little marinating goes a long way to help the flavor and add a little flare to a weeknight meal.

I’ve enjoyed a delicious partnership with my friends at Noble Juice in nearby Winter Haven. Creating fun new recipes using their naturally pure juices has been a lot of fun and certainly elevated the flavor profiles of the dishes I’ve created using their juices.
Let’s gather our ingredients for this tasty pork dish together. Feel free to use pork tenderloin or bone in pork chops.
Marinating the pork chops in a zip lock back makes life easy. I’m also going to be adding shitake mushrooms to my sauce as serving the pork with steamed broccoli and jasmine rice.
I can see this marinade working really well with chicken. And if you’re not big on pan frying and would rather grill the meats that would work too. Remember that nothing is etched in stone and if you don’t like mushrooms or broccoli, come up with your own favorite variation on this recipe.
For an authentic Asian meal, Jasmine rice will complete the experience and really lends itself to absorbing the sauces you’ll create in Asian cooking.
- 4 boneless pork chops
- 6 tablespoons tangerine juice
- 3 tablespoons low sodium soy sauce
- 6 tablespoons brown sugar
- 2 teaspoon sea salt
- 1 teaspoon five spice powder
- 1 tablespoon minced garlic

Mix together tangerine juice, soy sauce, brown sugar, five spice and salt. Divide the sauce into two parts.
Add half of the minced ginger, garlic and egg to one portion of the marinade mix to use with the pork chops.
Add pork to zip lock bag and pour in prepared marinade. Marinate overnight for best results, but at least for one hour. Massaging back every now and then, to work the marinade into the meat.
Just before frying, pour cornstarch on top of pork and stir into marinade, mixing as well as possible.
- Heat enough oil in a large skillet to cover the bottom of the pan. Place the pork chops in pan when the oil begins to shimmer.
Cook pork chops over med-high heat until cooked through. 2-3 minutes per side.
let remaining marinade mix come to room temperature before cooking the pork chops
in a saute pan add 1 tsp sesame oil remaining minced ginger, garlic and shitake mushrooms. saute for 2 minutes
mix 1 teaspoon cornstarch into the remaining marinade, adding the mixture to the pan with the ginger and garlic. Allow to lightly boil thickening the sauce. If sauce is too thick add water or additional tangerine juice.
