RECIPES

Here’s some clever meals you can make using our really Fresh Orange Juice:

ORANGE PASTA

  • 8 oz. short-cut pasta like rigatoni, penne, etc.
  • 3 tablespoons olive oil
  • 4 oz. pancetta or bacon (optional, the dish is otherwise vegetarian if you leave this out)
  • 1 medium onion, thinly sliced
  • 3 cloves garlic, thinly sliced
  • 1 cup Don Simon orange juice
  • ½ cup tomato paste
  • salt and pepper, to taste
  • 1/3 cup half-and-half or heavy cream
  • ¼ cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • zest of 1/2 an orange

Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil and add the pasta. While that’s happening, heat a skillet over medium heat and add the olive oil and pancetta/bacon (if using). Allow the pancetta to crisp up, and then add the onion and garlic. Cook for about 10 minutes, or until caramelized. ½ cup basil, julienned stir in the orange juice and tomato paste, and bring to a simmer. Season with salt and pepper to taste, and add the half and half. Scoop in your cooked pasta (reserve the cooking liquid), and parmesan cheese.

Give everything a good stir. Add in a little more of the starchy pasta water if the sauce needs thinning out.  Stir in the orange zest and basil. Give it a taste and adjust the seasoning if needed and you have this caramelized, glistening, tangy, orange pasta sauce with rigatoni ready to eat. Serve hot and the kids will love it!

Marinated Garlic orange steak

  • 1 kg thick cut porterhouse steak
  • 1/5 cup of Don Simon smooth orange juice
  • 2 cloves garlic, finely diced
  • 1 tablespoon fresh ginger, minced

Make crisscross cuts on surface of meat on both sides and place in a shallow dish. Reserve half of the orange juice. Mix remaining juice with garlic and ginger. Pour over meat and marinate in refrigerator for at least 6 hours. Preheat barbecue for medium heat. Brush cooking grate with oil and place steak on barbecue. Cook for 6 to 10 minutes per side. Remove from barbecue and rest for several minutes. Meanwhile, heat reserved orange juice. Slice meat and transfer to a serving platter. Pour heated orange juice over the meat.
