Thanks to our Featured Foodie, Savour the Senses, here’s a delicious, tangy, pork chop recipe that’s a must try!


  • 4 pork chops
  • 1 1/4 cups orange juice
  • 3/4 cups lime juice
  • 1 tbsp. black pepper
  • 1 1/2 tsp. cumin
  • 1 tsp. cayenne pepper
  • 1 tbsp. garlic powder
  • 1 tbsp. oregano
  • 3 tbsp. olive oil
  • 1/2 red onion (sliced thinly)
  • 2 cloves garlic (minced)
  • 1/4 cup white wine


  1. In a large, sealable container, mix 1 cup orange juice, 1/2 cup lime juice and pork. Let marinate, refrigerated, for 1 hour.
  2. In a small bowl, mix together the pepper, cumin, cayenne pepper, garlic powder and oregano.
  3. Dry the pork chops and coat with the spice mixture.
  4. In a large skillet, heat the olive oil over high heat and sear each side of the pork chops (about 1 minute per side).
  5. Reduce the heat to medium-low, add the onion and garlic and cook for an additional minute or two.
  6. Add the 1/4 cup orange juice, 1/4 cup lime juice and white wine. Reduce the heat to low and let simmer until the liquid is reduced, slightly thickened and the chops are cooked through (about 5-10 minutes).
  7. Remove the pork from the pan and cover to keep warm. Reduce the liquid again by half, then pour over the pork before serving.
