Ingredients

  • 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

Directions

  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 thermometer reads 160°. Serve with orange sauce.
