When I want to jump-start supper, I opt for these tender pork chops. The sweet and savory cherry sauce makes this recipe a keeper. Try serving it with wild rice pilaf. —Stephanie Ray, Naples, Florida


  • 1 cup fresh or frozen pitted tart cherries, thawed
  • 1 cup reduced-sodium chicken broth
  • 1/4 cup chopped sweet onion
  • 2 tablespoons honey
  • 1 teaspoon seasoned salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper
  • 4 boneless pork loin chops (5 ounces each)
  • 1 tablespoon cornstarch
  • 1 tablespoon cold water


  1. In a 6-qt. electric pressure cooker, combine the first 6 ingredients; top with pork chops. Lock lid; close pressure-release valve. Adjust to pressure-cook on high for 3 minutes. Quick-release pressure. A thermometer inserted in pork should read at least 145°.
  2. Remove pork to a serving platter; keep warm. In a small bowl, mix cornstarch and water until smooth; stir into pressure cooker. Select saute setting and adjust for low heat. Simmer, stirring constantly, until thickened, 1-2 minutes. Serve with pork.
