Pork Chops with Cranberry Sauce

  • 4 center-cut pork chops*
  • 1/2 teaspoon each salt and pepper
  • 1 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 1 tablespoons butter
  • 2 shallots, finely diced
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1/3 cup chicken broth
  • 1/3 cup white wine
  • 1 (16 oz) bag "Cape Cod Select Premium Frozen Cranberries"
  • 1 cup cranberry juice
  • 1/2 cup orange marmalade with elder-flower*
  • 2 tablespoons elder-flower syrup or brown sugar
  • 2 tablespoons apple cider vinegar
  • 1 cup acini di pepe pasta
  • 4 quarts water
Cooking Directions
  1. Sprinkle pork chops with salt and pepper.
  2. In a large skillet, heat oil and butter over medium high heat; brown pork chops until golden brown on both sides. Transfer to a plate.
  3. Add shallots and garlic to skillet; fry over medium heat until softened, about 2 minutes.
  4. Stir in chicken broth and white wine; bring to a boil; stirring constantly, scraping up any bits from bottom of skillet. Reduce to medium low. Return pork chops and any juices from plate back to skillet, simmer for 10 to 15 minutes.
  5. Meanwhile make cranberry sauce; in a small saucepan combine cranberries, cranberry juice, orange marmalade, elder-flower syrup or brown sugar and apple cider vinegar. Stir and cook over medium-low heat until marmalade melts and cranberries soften and begin to pop, about 5 to 8 minutes. Bring sauce to a boil, boil sauce about 2 minutes or until sauce thickens slightly, remove from heat. Pour sauce over pork chops. Simmer until sauce thickens and juices run clear when pork is pierced, and just a hint of pink remains inside, about 20 to 30 minutes.
  6. Prepare pasta; bring 4 quarts of water to a rapid boil, Add salt, if desired. Add pasta to boiling water. Cook uncovered, stirring occasionally, for 5 to 6 minutes or until desired tenderness is reached, Drain well and serve with pork chops and cranberry sauce.

*Substitute regular orange marmalade for orange marmalade with elder-flower.
*Cooking times will vary depending on thickness of pork chops.
