There are other recipes here similar but this one sounds a little differant. Found in Taste of Home Magazine with credit to Billie Moss of California. Sounds like a wonderful blend of flavors that I can't wait to try.

Absolutely delicious. The orange sauce is top notch and was great on the rice as well as the pork. It was about 30 mins start to finish and will please the whole family.I made 2 servings and added 1 tsp of Splenda in place of the sugar. My other change was to mix cornstarch into 2 Tbsp of orange juice instead of the ask for water and flour. This is ideal for the oncoming chill of Fall..well, actually anytime but it was especially comforting on this mid Oct evening up here in the True North. Thanks Bonnie.
I thickened the sauce with cornstarch instead of flour since i prefer sauces made with the lighter thickener. I loved the flavor of the paprika/pepper seasonings. I seasoned my meat a couple of hours before cooking so that the flavors had time to seep into the meat. And the sauce was great too. Thanks Bonnie. This would also be good made with Chicken Breasts.
