    kyky's Note:

    I ran across this recipe in an old cookbook that I found in a second hand store. I thought it sounded interesting, tried it and my kids thought it was great. It is kind of a spin on sweet and sour pork but instead of pineapple you use mandarin oranges. I add a little corn starch to the sauce when I cook it so it gets thicker.

      This was a nice change from plain old pork chops. Lots of flavor, easy to make and the kids liked it! I am going to try this on chicken as well.

      Very good Recipe!! I didn't have canned pineapples handy, but I sure had a lot of mandarin oranges!! Like blancpage, I used the juice from the mandarin orange & added water to make 1cup instead of using OJ (which I didn't have) I also used sliced fresh ginger & added bell peppers. I used Cornstarch to thicken the sauce & cut up my pork in cubes!

      I loved this recipe and so did my husband and 2 year old. I used fresh mandarin oranges and about 1/2 the brown sugar. The pork was sweet and juicy - thanks!
