Tender pork chops are treated to a thick mandarin-orange-and-green-pepper sauce that’s swiftly heated in the microwave. “This is a snap to make but looks very attractive,” Marie Hoyer confirms from Lewistown, Montana.

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

  • 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.
