Pork with Strawberry-Port Sauce

I never thought to add fruit to barbecue sauce, but after I saw a contest-winning recipe with the two, I decided to try something similar with pork. I'm glad I did—this turned out to be a family favorite! —Lily Julow, Gainesville, FL

    I also used chicken broth instead of wine with very pleasing results.

    I was intrigued with the jelly ingredient and like to try new recipes. This recipe is DELICIOUS! Served with Jasmine Rice and a wilted lettuce salad, it received rave reviews and would be special enough for company.
