Pork Chops in Balsamic Cherry Sauce
- 2 5-ounce boneless pork chops
- 1/3 c Balsamic Vinegar
- 1 T EVOO
- 1 large shallot, thinly sliced
- 1/3 c chicken broth
- 1/4 c dried Bing (sweet) or tart cherries (about 1 1/2 ounces)
Place pork and Balsamic Vinegar in pie dish; turn to coat. Let stand 10 minutes. Heat EVOO in heavy medium skillet over medium heat. Using tongs, lift pork from marinade; shake off excess. Transfer pork to skillet, reserving marinade in dish. Sprinkle pork with pepper. Sauté until brown, about 3 minutes per side. Transfer pork to plate. Add shallot to skillet; stir until softened, about 1 minute. Add broth, cherries and reserved marinade; bring to boil, scraping up browned bits. Return pork to skillet. Simmer until pork is cooked through, cherries are tender and sauce is slightly reduced, about 2 minutes per side. Season with salt and pepper. Transfer pork to plates; top with sauce.
