I will not make this again. Not that it wasn't good, but the sauce was neither sweet nor tart--good, just not very impressive or distinctive. My husband and I tend to like more bold flavor, which is what I expected from this. However, if you're looking for a relatively quick and different, very safe meal (for picky eaters), I imagine this would be more creative and yet still acceptable to many people's tastes!

I thought this recipe was fantastic & just submitted a photo for review =) I used Clementine oranges & my 3 & 5 year old loved them. Definitely a good way to make pork fun for little kids. I made a 1.83 lb pork roast, so I added about 20 minutes to the time in the recipe and it came out perfect. The molasses/onions/broth/brown sugar/oranges au jus was delicious.


I had to modify this recipe because I had variations of the ingredients. I used thinly sliced pork chops, seasoned with a citrus seasoning mix from the grocery store. I used juice from some mandarins I had on hand, and used agave nectar instead of molasses. While the shallots were cooking I added a pinch or two of red peppers to kick it up a notch. Otherwise followed it to a T. Very delicious recipe! As a side I made soba noodles and after draining, added argula leaves and some of the citrus sauce. Thank you for this recipe!
