Orange Braised Pork Loin

This stovetop braised pork loin is quick and easy to prepare, and orange juice and garlic make it taste great. Serve this easily done braised pork loin with rice or noodles for a tasty family meal.

Prep Time: 15 minutes

Cook Time: 1 hour

Total Time: 1 hour, 15 minutes


  • 1 boneless pork loin, about 2 pounds
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons olive oil, enough to coat the bottom of the pan
  • 2 teaspoons Cajun seasoning
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 2 tablespoons flour
  • 1 medium onion, thinly sliced
  • 1 cup orange juice
  • 4 medium cloves garlic, mashed and finely minced
  • 2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar
  • 3 tablespoons brown sugar
  • cilantro for garnish


Remove netting from pork. Wash pork loin and pat dry.

Heat oil in a large Dutch oven or deep saute pan over medium heat.

Combine the Cajun seasoning, pepper, and flour in a plate. Roll the pork loin in the flour mixture to coat all sides. Sear on all sides in the hot oil. Add the onions and continue cooking for 1 minute.

Reduce heat to medium-low and add the orange juice, garlic, balsamic vinegar, and brown sugar. Cover and cook for about 1 hour, or until an instant read thermometer inserted into the center of the roast registers at  least 145°.
Garnish with cilantro, if desired. Serves 4 to 6.

Yummy, Member carmenwaz

I made this tonight. Since I did not have cajun seasoning I used a salt free all purpose seasoning and made sure to salt and pepper my meat before I rolled it in the seasoned flour. It was still great, I would make it again and so easy! The meat came out tender and juicy and the only other thing I did differently was add another onion because I love them. My roast was 1.7lbs and was done in exactly one hour. My husband loved it and we would both eat again.
