Gluten Free Orange Sesame Pork

I love the flavor of Asian food.
But I don't like that it's usually heavily battered in a gluten containing recipe, deep-fried with other gluten  ingredients then smothered in gluten-full soy sauce.
So the solution?
Find a GF chinese place, which there are some
or the easier and cheaper route
make it at home!

This orange chicken is not very sweet but really really tasty and easy.
Next time I make this, for presentation and for ease of eating, I'm going to cut the orange wedges into chunks.

Gluten Free Orange Sesame Pork

1 orange
1/2 lb pork roast or pork tenderloin
2 T. soy sauce
1 T. sugar
2 T. orange juice
1/4 t. pepper 
1/4 cup cornstarch or arrowroot flour
Canola oil
2 T. soy sauce
1/2 c. orange juice
2 T. marmalade jam
1 T. sesame seeds
Cooked brown rice

Peel and slice orange.  Set aside.
Slice pork into bite size pieces.  
In a dish combine 2 T. soy sauce, sugar, 2 T. orange juice and pepper.  Add pork and coat.  Allow to marinate for 15 minutes.  
Put cornstarch in a small bowl.  Drain marinade and coat pork with cornstarch.
Heat oil in a pan.  If you are deep frying pork you will need 2 C of oil.  I just drizzled some oil into the pan. 
Cook pork until cooked and golden.  Remove most of the oil from the pan.  Add 2 T. soy sauce, 1/2 cup orange juice, and marmalade.  Heat and stir until bubbly.  Stir in pork.  Stir to coat.  Serve over brown rice and oranges.  Sprinkle with sesame seeds.
