Reviews for Pork with Blueberry Herb Sauce
"I made this using some pork tenderloin medallions for the TOH community ingredient challenge using frozen Maine blueberries. It was fantastic; never thought of pairing blueberries with meat (except for using blueberries in chicken salad). I got enough for two more meals that I froze, and would make this again."
"This was really good. I would have never put blueberries with pork chops, but it really worked. I will definitely make these again."
