Braised Pork Chops, Dried Cranberries w/Ginger & Oranges

Serves: 4 people

Recipe Ingredients

2 1/2 tablespoons 37mlReduced-sodium soy sauce
1 teaspoon 5mlMinced fresh ginger root
1/2 teaspoon 2.5mlDried thyme
1/4 teaspoon 1.3mlGrated orange zest
1/8 teaspoon 0.6mlFreshly ground black pepper
4   Boneless loin pork chops - about 5 to 6 ounces each
1 1/2 tablespoons 22mlCanola or corn oil
1/3 cup 20g / 0.7ozChopped onion
1 1/3 cups 315mlCranberry juice cocktail
1/2 cup 46g / 1.6ozDried sweetened cranberries

Recipe Instructions

In a large shallow bowl, combine the soy sauce, ginger, thyme, orange

zest and pepper. Add the chops, turn to coat and set aside to

marinate for 15 minutes.

Heat the oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add the onion

and cook, stirring frequently, until softened, 3 to 5 minutes.

Transfer the chops to the skillet, reserving the marinade. Cook the

chops, turning occasionally, until browned on both sides but not

cooked through, about 5 minutes total. Stir in the reserved marinade,

1/3 cup of the cranberry juice cocktail and the cranberries and bring

the mixture to a boil. Reduce the heat to medium-low and simmer just

until the pork is cooked through, 9 to 12 minutes. If the liquid

completely evaporates, add a little more cranberry juice cocktail.

Transfer the chops to a serving platter; cover to keep warm. Add the

remaining 1 cup cranberry juice cocktail to the skillet, increase the

heat to high and boil until the sauce reduces and becomes syrupy,

about 3 minutes. Be careful not to let it burn. Spoon the sauce and

cranberries over the chops and serve immediately.

Cranberries aren't just a side dish to go with turkey. This is an

easy way to dress up pork chops.
