Cranberry-Orange Pork Chops

2 thick (3/4") boneless pork chops (I took one of the thick ones from Costco and sliced it in half)
1 T butter
salt and pepper
1 c fresh/frozen cranberries
1 T Splenda brown sugar blend
3/4 c water
2 t cornstarch
1 4-oz. cup mandarin oranges (from Del Monte or Dole snack packs)
hot white rice (optional)

Brown chops on both sides in butter. Sprinkle lightly with salt and pepper. Add cranberries, brown sugar, and juice from oranges; cover and simmer about 20 minutes. (Cranberries will release their juices). Remove chops from pan and keep warm. Combine water and cornstarch and add to berries. Simmer, stirring, until thickened. Add oranges and reheat. Serve sauce over chops and rice, if desired. Serves 2.
