Mandarin Orange Pork Chops

READY IN: 30mins
Recipe by kyky9353

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.
