Sweet and Spicy Pork - An Irresistible Marinade

Tired of eating tasteless pork chops?  This marinade can be used on chicken or any cut of pork.  There is also a small amount of oil in the recipe, which makes this a figure-friendly meal.

Sweet Balsamic Marinade
- 2 TBSP orange marmalade
- 1 TBSP balsamic vinegar
- 1/2 TBSP soy sauce
- 1 tsp extra virgin olive oil
- 1/2 tsp Cajun spice (Optional... but definitely recommended)
- Salt and pepper

Mix the ingredients into a small bowl.  Whisk thoroughly.  If you prefer the marinade to be thicker... it is optional to add more oil or marmalade.  In a shallow baking pan, add the pork or chicken.  Cover the meat with the marinade and then cover with saran wrap.  Refrigerate for 20-30 minutes.  Bake at 425 degrees for 25 minutes or until pork is cooked through.

This recipe will pair very well with Red Beans and Rice.  You can also add veggies or salad as an additional side dish.  Cabernet wine will compliment the spiciness very well.

Enjoy!  Have a fantastic weekend readers.
