This is a really wonderful dish. We love pork chops and combined with this sweet sauce… wow!

Serves 4

2 tablespoons butter

2 shallots, finely chopped

½ lb dried cherries (soaked in warm water for 1 hour and drain)

1 cup vegetable broth

2 tablespoons orange marmalade

1 tablespoon balsamic

salt & pepper, to taste

4 large pork chops, bone-in

butter, for frying

  1. Heat the butter in a saucepan and sauté the shallots until soft. This will take about 2–3 minutes.
  2. Stir in the cherries, broth, marmalade, and balsamic.
  3. Simmer until the sauce thickens a little. This will take about 8–10 minutes.
  4. Season with salt and pepper.
  5. Heat the butter in a pan and fry the pork chops until golden brown. They need about 3 minutes on each side.
  6. Serve with the sauce.
