Blackberry-Sauced Pork Chops

There’s no need to turn on the oven when you serve Blackberry-Sauced Pork Chops for dinner. Cooked on the grill or in a skillet, these moist chops from Priscilla Gilbert of Indian Harbour Beach, Florida are dressed for summer in a sweet homemade berry sauce that’s ready in moments.

Jazzed up with fresh herbs, zesty Garlic-Herb Orzo Pilaf makes a versatile, good-for-you side dish. It’s an easy way to complement many of the meat entrees Mary Relyea serves her family in Canastota, New York.



  • For a change of pace, Priscilla likes to serve the blackberry sauce over grilled chicken. You could also serve the meat with other flavors of spreadable fruit and berries as a variation.
  • "Any small pasta, such as elbow macaroni, can be used instead of orzo in the side dish," Mary suggests.
  • To snip fresh basil leaves quickly for her orzo pilaf dish, Mary recommends using kitchen scissors.
