Saw this in Good Housekeeping while I sitting at the hair salon. Too many people around to rip the recipe out of the magazine so I got it off their website. Posting before I forget so I can use soon...

  5. Add mustard and orange peel and juice to skillet; cook 1 minute, stirring occasionally.
  6. Meanwhile, microwave rice as label directs.
  7. Divide pork, carrots, and rice among 4 serving plates and spoon sauce over all.

OMG this is very good! We love pork and this came out very tender plus flavorful. The technique is perfect. I microwaved my carrots in a steam bag for 3 minutes w/o water and then added them to leftover rice I had made the day before-so not same sort of rice. Thank you AZPARZYCH for posting.

I made 2 servings using a large shallot for the red onion and some already cooked chicken rice that I had. This recipe turned out wonderfully, it tastes delicious and is quicker than a round trip to MacDonald's (not to mention a whale of a lot healthier). The fresh orange flavor is delightful and mixing it with the mustard puts a marvelous edge on the entire dish. Serve this recipe with a fresh green salad and your home free with a great meal on the table in under 30 mins!

Excellent! The pork was so tender and delicious. I loved the combination of the pork, sauce, rice and carrots. Wonderful. The technique for cooking the carrots was awesome and I will use that again and again. Thank you!!
