Pork with Blueberry Herb Sauce

A different and delicious way to use blueberries, this tangy, sweet-savory sauce would also be great over chicken. The blend of berries and balsamic is wonderful! —Libby Walp, Chicago

    160, you cook your pork for that long you'll have leather with blueberry sauce. I'd say 145 is probably as high as I'd go with a loin chop.

    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.

    Easy and soooo delicious! I grilled my porkchops and simmered the other ingredients on the stove.

    Super simple recipe and very tasty! Love the spicy contrast of the herb rub with the sweet blueberries! My whole family loved it and asked for the recipe.

    I made this with blackberries instead and it was wonderful. I'm going to make it again soon.

    I followed the recipe exactly as written and this came out yummy. The flavors paired nicely and the sweet wasn't overpowering.I'm going to try it with chicken next time.
