Braised Pork Chops with Cherries

Cherries have a short season, heralding the start of summer. They pair well with duck or pork in savory dishes, bringing out the natural sweetness of the meat. A cherry pitter will make short work of the stones. When fresh cherries aren't in season, use dried cherries.

Fantastic Summer Dish
June 7, 2016
Not only a beautiful dish, but also full of flavor and a perfect way to celebrate the start of summer. I used fresh cherries that were slightly tart and balanced them with an aged balsamic and a nice port wine. The final presentation brought surprise to my guests and satisfied our appetites.
*Hint - Salt and flavor the meat 24 hours prior to making.
Pros: Impressive, Will Make Again, Adaptable, Appearance

It was sooo good!

I recommend that you use Marsala Port wine. You don't need to buy an expensive one. I bought the cheepest one in the market and the sauce was delicious. (It was not costly because I bought inexpensive ingredients when I could.) Because they did not have leeks in my grocery store I used shallots instead. I also used the generic supermarket brand low sodium broth. The only time consuming ingredient were the cherries because I had to pit them without a cherry pitter but I didn't mind because of the results. I served it with cuban style white rice. Not difficult to make (outside of the cherries) and the results were a hit with my family. Highly recommend this recipe.
Pros: Easy, Healthy, Will Make Again
