Pork Chops A La Orange
4 loin pork chops, bone in or boneless, 3/4 - 1" thick
1/2 - 3/4 small can orange juice concentrate
1 10 oz can double strength chicken broth
1 large onion sliced into thick rings
1/2 c raisins
1/2 - 3/4 small bag 'baby' carrots
1 soup can of dry white wine (or more broth or water)
1t curry powder
1/4 c brown sugar (or can use honey)
1T lemon juice
1/2t chopped garlic
Enough additional water or broth to cover the chops
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 the chops.
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 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.
