Cranberry Pork Chops with Rice Recipe
- 1/3 cup all-purpose flour
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1/2 teaspoon seasoned salt
- 1/4 teaspoon pepper
- 4 boneless pork loin chops (1/2 inch thick and 4 ounces each)
- 2 tablespoons olive oil
- 1 can (14 ounces) whole-berry cranberry sauce
- 1 tablespoon balsamic vinegar
- CRANBERRY RICE:
- 1-3/4 cups chicken broth
- 2 cups instant brown rice

- 1. In a large resealable plastic bag, combine the flour, salt, seasoned salt and pepper. Add pork chops, one at a time, and shake to coat. In a large skillet, cook pork in oil over medium-high heat for 4-5 minutes on each side or until juices run clear. In a small bowl, combine cranberry sauce and vinegar; pour over chops. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat; cover and simmer for 10 minutes.
- 2. Meanwhile, in a large saucepan, bring broth to a boil. Add rice and cranberries. Return to a boil. Reduce heat; cover and simmer for 5 minutes. Remove from the heat. Let stand for 5 minutes or until broth is absorbed. Serve pork chops with sauce and rice. Yield: 4 servings.
