Cranberries are a wonderful little snack, and I also enjoy using them in my cooking.

Consequently, I decided to prepare them in the sauce.

pork chop with cranberry, port and rosemary sauce

I let the dried cranberries marinate in the Port while the chops cook.

The plumpness released during cooking therefore making the sauce richer.

I had some cranberry sauce left over from the holidays.

Any store-bought or special home recipe will be just fine.

Any side vegetables, white butter rice, or potatoes will be the perfect side dish with the pork chops.
