Orange Glazed Pork is something that you should try to make if you want to make your lunch more interesting. If you are a fan of orange chicken, you will like this dish. It taste almost like it less the sticky texture.
I love to have orange glazed pork for lunch along with yang chow fried rice. If I am lazy (which is most of the time), I just make a simple ham and egg fried rice — plain rice will do too, but I suggest going with fried rice for a much better experience.
