Pinapple Ginger Pork Chops

4 servings

1 can (20 oz.) pineapple tidbits
1 tea. Pepper
½ tea. Ground ginger
4 bone-in pork loin chops
1 tbs. butter
½ C. orange juice
1 tbs. cornstarch
1/8 tea. Salt
¼ C. water

Drain pineapple, reserving ¼ cup juice; set aside. Combine pepper and ginger; rub over both sides of pork chops. In a skillet, brown chops in butter for 2-3 minutes on each side. Add orange juice, 1 cup of pineapple and reserved juice. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat; cover and simmer for 15-20 minutes or until meat is tender. Remove chops and keep warm. In a small bowl, combine the cornstarch, salt, and water until smooth; stir into pan juices. Bring to a boil; cook and stir for 2 minutes or until thickened. Serve with pork.
