“The sweet marinade keeps the pork from being dry, plus the mint-fig sauce provides a wonderfully light addition to an already tasty pork.” - by Terri Harnish
Original recipe yields 6 pork chops
- Whisk together 1 cup orange juice, 2 tablespoons olive oil, and the minced garlic in a bowl; pour into a resealable plastic bag. Add the pork chops, coat with the marinade, squeeze out excess air, and seal the bag. Marinate in the refrigerator for at least 8 hours.
- Place the figs and mint leaves into a blender, and blend until pureed. Add the balsamic vinegar, 3 tablespoons olive oil, honey, and 1/2 cup orange juice to the blender, and puree until smooth and thick. Season to taste with sea salt and pepper, then set aside.
- Preheat an outdoor grill for medium-high heat, and lightly oil the grate. Remove the pork from the marinade. Discard the remaining marinade. Wrap each pork chop with a slice of bacon, securing with toothpicks as necessary; season with salt and pepper.
- Grill the pork chops until the pork is no longer pink in the center, about 5 minutes per side. An instant-read thermometer inserted into the center should read 145 degrees F (63 degrees C). Pour the mint-fig sauce over the pork chops to serve.

"I really enjoyed this recipe. I wasn't sure how to use up some extra figs I had on hand, and was nervous to try and make a sauce with them on my own without any directions. I didn't have mint on hand,..." See more or time to marinade ahead of time, and it still came out great. I also cooked it all on the stove. I will make this again. Thanks!"
