We have pork for dinner about once a week, so it’s nice to find recipes that are a bit different than ones we’ve had many times before.
The recipe comes from Recipes for Busy People, which was published by Kelly Services (The “Kelly Girl” People) in 1980. It’s quick and easy, with a preparation time of only 30 minutes.
