Pork Chops a la Orange
Source of Recipe
4 loin pork chops, bone in or boneless, 3/4 to 1" thick
1/2 to 3/4 small can orange juice concentrate
10 oz can double strength chicken broth
1 onion sliced into thick rings
1/2 c raisins
1/2 to 3/4 small bag baby carrots
1 soup can dry white wine
1 t curry powder
1/4 c brown sugar or honey
1 T lemon juice
1/2 t chopped garlic
Brown the chops in a skillet. Set aside. Saute onion in drippings
until softened and slightly brown. Add garlic and brown lightly.
Put carrots in the bottom of the crockpot. Top with onions and then
Pour off any grease in the frypan, if any, and then add soup to
hot frypan and scrape up all the brown drippings on the bottom of
the pan. Pour this into the crockpot also. Add all remaining
ingredients plus enough water to cover and cook on high for 3-4
hrs or low for 2-2.5 times as long or until the chops are tender.
When the meat is tender, taste the sauce and adjust seasonings to
suit. If it is not flavorfull enough you may wish to simmer for
a while to reduce. Once the flavor is to your liking, you may wish
to add a tablespoon of cornstarch or arrowroot at the end and let
the sauce thicken a bit.
You could substitute chicken breasts or thighs or even turkey parts
for the pork in this recipe. This is great surved with stuffing
or rice or couscous on the side and a green vegetable or salad.
