Orange Sauce over Pork Chops Recipe
Tender pork chops are treated to a thick mandarin-orange-and-green-pepper sauce that’s swiftly heated in the microwave. “This is a snap to make but looks very attractive,” Marie Hoyer confirms from Lewistown, Montana.
- 1 tablespoon cornstarch
- 3 tablespoons orange juice
- 1 can (15 ounces) mandarin oranges
- 1 tablespoon sliced green onion
- 1 tablespoon chopped green pepper
- 1 tablespoon all-purpose flour
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 1/8 teaspoon pepper
- 4 boneless pork loin chops (4 ounces each)
- 2 teaspoons canola oil
- 1. In a microwave-safe bowl, combine cornstarch and orange juice until smooth. Drain oranges, reserving juice; set oranges aside. Stir reserved juice into cornstarch mixture; add onion and green pepper. Microwave, uncovered, on high for 2-3 minutes or until thickened, stirring twice. Stir in oranges; set aside and keep warm.
- 2. In a large resealable plastic bag, combine the flour, salt and pepper. Add pork chops, one at a time, and shake to coat. In a large nonstick skillet, cook pork in oil over medium heat until a meat thermometer reads 160°. Serve with orange sauce. Yield: 4 servings.
