Raspberry Vinegar Pork Chops Recipe

Raspberry Vinegar Pork Chops Recipe

This recipe originally called for chicken; in addition to pork, I've tried it with grouse for a change of pace. The area I live in is very rural, and so many of my visitors stay overnight. Some of those friends send me fresh raspberries before they arrive as a hint they'd like me to serve this dish!
TOTAL TIME: Prep/Total Time: 30 min. YIELD:8 servings

Ingredients

  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 8 boneless pork loin chops (1 inch thick)
  • 1/2 cup raspberry vinegar, divided
  • 3 garlic cloves, thinly sliced
  • 2 tomatoes, seeded and chopped
  • 1 teaspoon rubbed sage or dried thyme or dried tarragon
  • 1 tablespoon fresh or dried parsley
  • 1/2 cup chicken broth
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • Fresh raspberries
  • Fresh sage

Directions

  • 1. Melt butter in a large skillet, add oil. Brown the pork on each side over high heat. Pour off oil; reduce heat to medium-low. Add 2 tablespoons vinegar and garlic. Cover; simmer for 10 minutes.
  • 2. Remove pork to heated container; cover to keep warm. Add remaining vinegar; stir up browned bits from bottom of skillet. Raise heat and boil until the vinegar is reduced to a thick glaze. Add the tomatoes, sage, parsley and chicken stock. Boil until liquid is reduced to half of the original volume.
  • 3. Strain sauce; season with the salt and pepper. Spoon over chops. Garnish with fresh raspberries and sage. Yield: 8 servings.
