Orange Marmalade Pork

I think at one time I saw a recipe with orange marmalade on pork and it stuck in my head. The other day I had some pork loin roast that I cut into 3 to 4 ounce chops. As I looked at them the orange marmalade idea popped into my head again so I got to looking in the cupboards and sure enough there was a jar of orange marmalade so I went to work on a marmalade.

8 3 to 4 ounce pork loin chops, trimmed of fat
8 oz orange marmalade
1/4 cup red wine vinegar
2 tablespoons lemon juice (juice of 1 lemon)
zest of 1 lemon
1/3 cup olive oil
1/4 cup brown sugar
1 teaspoon ground ginger
1/2 teaspoon red pepper flacks
1 tablespoon salt
pepper to taste

put all ingredients in a Ziploc back and marinade over night or for about 8 hours

Heat the grill. pull the pork out of the marinade and put marinade in a pan and reduce. cook pork on the grill basting with the reduced marinade until done (mine took about 4 minutes a side)

I also steamed some broccoli and cut a pineapple into rounds and grilled those also.

If you are watching your weight or food intake the pork was about 2 tablespoons of marinade as 5 zucchinis

One of the things I loved about Mexico was all the little doorways that peeked into something beautiful.
