Pork Loin Steaks with Sunshine Sauce

Chef Ali was doing one of her famous refrigerator cleanouts and found some carrots and orange marmalade. These ingredients are perfect for a sauce for pork chops and this is what she came up with!


  • 4 boneless pork chops
  • 1 tablespoon Amish butter/ olive oil
  • Salt and Pepper
  • 1 sweet onion chopped
  • 1 pound carrots peeled and sliced
  • 2 tablespoons Dijon Mustard
  • 1/4 cup Orange Marmalade
  • 1 1/2 cups chicken Stock
  • Fresh Thyme and Oregano


  • Salt and pepper the chops.
  • Add a little olive oil and 1 tablespoon of Amish butter to a shallow pan.
  • Brown the chops on both sides.
  • Push them to the side and add the onions. Let them sauté for a few minutes and then add the mustard and marmalade.
  • Stir to combine and then nestle the chops back in the pan, add the carrots, and then pour over the stock.
  • Place a lid on the pan and turn the heat down to low. Cook for about 30-40 mins until the pork is tender and the carrots are cooked.
  • Take off the lid, add the chopped herbs, and turn up the heat to let the sauce boil and reduce a little.

This meal is complete but if you choose you can serve it over rice, mashed potatoes, or even grits. Be sure to have a spoon handy for the yummy sauce!

Oh, and we thought a Shiner Boch went great with the meal!
