This one from the lovely Lisa:

Citrus Pork

Serves 4

4 lean pork chops/medallions
1 tablespoon olive oil
3/4 cup unsweetened apple juice
1/2 teaspoon each dried mint, rosemary & tarragon
cracked black pepper
2 mandarins

Heat the oil & brown the pork quickly on both sides. Remove them from the pan & rest them on paper, drain any fat from the pan.
Add the apple juice, herbs & pepper, and heat until boiling.
Add the chops, reduce the heat, cover & simmer for 15 minutes.
While you're waiting for that, peel, de-pith & segment the mandarins. Add them to the meat & simmer for a
further 5 minutes.
Remove the chops & fruit from the pan with a slotted spoon & put them on a warm serving dish
Boil the liquid until it thickens, & then pour it over the chops.
Serve it with stir-fried veggies and noodles. Mmmm...
