"I used bone-in pork chops (because that's what I had in the freezer) and a raspberry-balsamic vinegar. My husband and I were both pleased with the results. I may make more sauce next time, but that's just because I like a lot of sauce. The amount in the original recipe was fine with my husband."

"Am I missing something? The recipe calls for 2 tablespoons of vinegar and 3 tablespoons of dried cranberries and then reduce that down to 1/2 cup?!?!? Where is the liquid coming from? I made this but no where near the liquid for 1/2 cup reduced. The flavor was still good and I will make it again, but would like to know the actual amount of liquid for the sauce."

"This was pretty good. The raspberry flavor came through more than the cranberry - for me anyway. I doubled the sauce ingredients cause we apparently like things a little more saucy than most. It didn't really reduce much for me, but it was a good enough consistency."
