Cranberry-Pineapple Pork Chops

I love to serve this sauce with Christmas ham, but it's also great for a weeknight meal, like these pork chops. With a burst of flavor in every bite, these boneless chops are sure to become a family favorite. —Priscilla Gilbert, Indian Harbour Beach, Florida

    I really enjoyed this quick and easy dinner for Christmas Eve before my traditional all-night gift wrapping. The only change I made was to add the entire can of pineapple. I served it with the Walnut Rice from the same issue.

    This was very quick easy and DELICIOUS! I didn't use sugar since the pineapple and dried cranberries were sweet enough. I used a little less butter, which gave the sauce a light buttery taste. I also used greek olive oil rather than canola oil to cook pork chops. Was delicious!!!

    Absolutely delicious! Flavorful, easy to make, and can't get enough of it once I start to eat. (Look at the review from 2009...the person gave it one star and meant to give it five; don't let the lower rating scare you away.)

    This was really great! My family really liked it and for once, I didn't have to make a special run to the store for the ingredients!
