Ingredients

Cranberry Glaze

  • 1 cup water
  • 3/4 cup brown sugar
  • 2 cups fresh cranberries
  • 2 tbsp orange juice frozen or 1/4 cup juice
  • 1 tbsp fresh ginger minced
  • 1 tbsp apple cider vinegar
  • 1 tbsp honey
  • 1 jalapeño or serrano pepper

Pork Chops

  • 4 - 8 oz pork chops bone-in 3/4-inch to 1-inch thick (2 lbs total)
  • salt
  • Freshly ground black pepper
  • 2 tbsp unsalted butter

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 400°F. Season pork chops with kosher salt and pepper.
  • Combine the water, brown sugar, cranberries, chile pepper, orange juice, ginger, apple cider vinegar and honey in a sauce pan. Cook on medium heat for 15 minutes until berries have started to split open and sauce starts to thicken.
  • Remove and discard the chile pepper. Transfer mixture to a blender and purée. Set aside, covered and cook pork chops.
  • Melt butter in a large oven proof skillet (like cast iron) over medium-high heat. Add the pork chops and sear until golden brown on both sides, about 3-4 minutes total. Place pan in oven and roast pork chops until completely cooked through, about 8-10 minutes. (See Note 1)
  • When done remove from oven and pour glaze over pork chops, turning to coat, heat through and serve immediately.

Notes

  1. Cooking time may vary depending on thickness of pork chops. I used 3/4” thick.
