Pork chops with cranberry, port and rosemary sauce.
Cranberries are a wonderful little snack and I also enjoy using them in my cooking. Consequently I decided to prepare them in the sauce.
Tonight is a good example and it was fun putting it together.
I let the dried cranberries marinate in the Port while the chops were cooking. The plumpness release 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.
