Pork Chops with Cherry Sauce

Pork Chops with Cherry Sauce

Cherries add flavor to pork chops.


  • 2 boneless pork loin chops, about 1-inch thick
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste
  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 1/2 cup chopped onion
  • 1 cup reduced sodium chicken broth
  • 1/3 to 1/2 cup dried Montmorency tart cherries
  • 2 tablespoons orange marmalade
  • 1 tablespoon balsamic vinegar
  • Dried red pepper flakes, to taste


  1. Season pork chops with salt and pepper. Heat oil in a large skillet on high heat. Add pork shops; brown well, about 3 minutes per side.
  2. Remove to plate. Add onions to skillet; cook until tender, 3 to 5 minutes.
  3. Add chicken broth, dried cherries, orange marmalade, vinegar and red pepper flakes. Bring to a boil; boil rapidly on medium heat until broth is reduced by half.
  4. Reduce heat. Add pork chops to pan to heat through, 5 to 6 minutes. (Cook pork chops longer on lower heat, if pork chops are very thick or if they have a bone in them.) Internal temperature of the pork should be about 160 degrees F. Add chicken broth or water, if needed.
  5. Serve pork chops with cherry sauce spooned over them.
