Sticky Citrus Pork Steaks

Sticky Citrus Pork Steaks

Citrus and pork are a great pairing, especially when you're cooking our pork steaks which are generously marbled and full of flavor. The acid from the oranges balances out the richness of the pork and, combined with soy and honey, you get a combination of bright, sweet, tangy, and umami flavors. It also makes for a beautiful presentation served family style.
