Peaceful Pastures Sampler Pack 5 stars (1)

Pork Sampler Pack - $100.00

Spicy Citrus Pan Sauce


  • 1/2 cup molasses
  • 1/4 cup juice and 1 1/2 teaspoons zest from 2 limes
  • 1 cup juice from 2 large oranges
  • 2 medium garlic cloves chopped
  • 4 chipotle chiles en adobo
  • 2 tablespoons cold, unsalted butter cut into 2 pieces
  • Salt and ground black pepper


    In the bowl of a food processor, puree molasses, lime juice, garlic, and chipotle chiles until smooth. Transfer to a small bowl; set aside.

    Pour off fat from the skillet used to brown the chops/ham steaks. Place the skillet over medium-high heat and add the molasses mixture, scraping the pan bottom with a wooden spoon to loosen the browned bits. Simmer until thickened and syrupy (about 2 minutes). Whisk in butter, one piece at a time. Season to taste with salt and pepper and serve with the pork chops or ham steaks.
