  • 2 boneless pork sirloin chops, cut 3/4-inch thick (about 10 ounces total)
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • Nonstick cooking spray
  • 1/2 cup cranberry juice, apple juice, or apple cider
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons spicy brown mustard
  • 3/4 teaspoon cornstarch
  • 1/2 cup pitted and halved fresh dark sweet cherries or frozen unsweetened pitted dark sweet cherries, thawed and halved
Sprinkle pork chops with salt and pepper. Coat an unheated large nonstick skillet with nonstick cooking spray. Preheat over medium-high heat. Add pork chops to skillet. Cook for 8 to 10 minutes or until pork is slightly pink in the center and juices run clear (160 degrees F), turning once halfway through cooking time. Remove chops; cover and keep warm.
In a small bowl stir together cranberry juice, mustard, and cornstarch; add to skillet. Cook and stir over medium heat until thickened and bubbly. Cook and stir for 2 minutes more. Stir in cherries. Serve cherry mixture over pork chops. Makes 2 servings.
