More Information

Ingredients:

  • 4 pork chops, center cut (12oz each)
  • 8 oz. Sunkist® Moro Orange Stuffing
  • 1 cup Sunkist® Moro Orange Chipotle Glaze

  • Moro Orange Stuffing:
  • 5 1/3 oz. prepared stuffing
  • 2 2/3 oz. Sunkist® moro orange, peeled, seeded, chopped
  • 2 tsp. fresh cilantro, chopped

  • Moro Chipotle Glaze:
  • 1/4 cup freshly squeezed Sunkist® moro orange juice
  • 1/2 cup apple cider vinegar
  • 1 3/4 oz. chipotle peppers, in adobo sauce, pureed
  • 1/4 cup soy sauce, low sodium
  • 2 cups sugar, granulated

Instructions: (Makes 4 servings)

  • Carefully cut a slit into the side of the meat portion of the chop, moving your knife to form a pocket. Be careful not to cut through the meat surface.
  • With a gloved hand, stick a finger into the opening, and carefully enlarge the pocket. Fill the pocket with 2 oz. of stuffing.
  • Brush both sides of the chop with the Sunkist Moro Orange Chipotle Glaze, and mark on the grill.
  • Place on a pan, and place in a pre-heated 400ยบ oven and cook for 12-14 minutes (or until desired doneness), brushing periodically with the glaze, until the chop is cooked through and the stuffing is hot.
  • Remove from the oven, brush one last time with the glaze, and serve with starch and vegetable du jour.
  • Moro Orange Stuffing: In a mixing bowl, blend the stuffing, Sunkist Moro Orange pieces, and the cilantro.
  • Hold under refrigeration, covered, until needed.
  • Moro Chipotle Glaze: In a large saucepot add all the ingredients and stir together.
  • Bring to a boil, and reduce to a medium high heat. Watch the pot so that the liquid does not boil over.
  • Cook until the sauce is reduced and coats the back of a spoon forming a glaze, 20-30 minutes.
