PINEAPPLE GINGER PORK CHOPS

1 can (20 oz) unsweetened pineapple tidbits
1 tsp fresh ground black pepper
1/2 tsp ground ginger
4 bone-in pork loin chops
1 tbsp butter
1/2 cup orange juice
1 tbsp cornstarch
1/8 tsp salt
1/4 cup water

Drain pineapple, reserving 1/4 cup of the juice; set aside. (Refrigerate remaining juice for other uses.) Combine the pepper and ginger; rub it over both sides of the chops. In a skillet, melt the butter, add the pork chops and brown for 2 to 3 minutes on each side. Add orange juice, 1 cup of the pineapple, and the 1/4 cup of reserved pineapple juice. Bring skillet mixture to a boil. Reduce heat; cover the skillet and simmer for 15 to 20 minutes or until the meat is tender and cook through. Remove the pork chops from the skillet and keep warm. In a small bowl, combine the cornstarch, salt, and water until smooth. Stir the mixture into the pan juices and bring to a boil. Cook and stir for a couple of minutes until thickened. Serve mixture over the pork chops.
