Pork Chops and Apple Sauce--no more!

*First--hate Blogger for messing me up sometimes. I hit the enter key to try to space something and whoops...post published! Not what I wanted. Grrrr.


Last night was a busy night with the homemade jelly. So at the very end I took some pork chops and reserved blueberries and made a delicious, very fast dinner.

Season pork chops with salt & pepper and saute in olive oil until browned and just cooked through, depending on the size of the chops, about 5 minutes. These chops were seasoned with a Whiskey Rub by Vanns Spices. Very tasty, but with this sauce, the rub took over the lead flavor profile.

Toss in some onions and saute until they start to brown. Add 1 TB chopped fresh thyme. Pour in 1 cup of chicken broth. Bring to a boil. Add 1 cup fresh blueberries. Simmer for 5 minutes.

The berries will burst and flavor the sauce; which will reduce down. Add 1 TB of butter to enrich the sauce.

Spoon sauce over the chops. Enjoy!

I really enjoyed this twist on a good standard pork chop recipe. The blueberries were a nice background flavor, and occasionally would burst to the forefront, mixing nicely with the thyme and pepper.
