Hunk of Meat Monday: Pork Chops with Cranberries

This past week, while Jon and Lisa were in Mexico, the kids, Tim and I stayed at the farm. Even though we live very close, it is best to have someone stay where the animals are. You never know when someone will get out or something will go wrong. Thankfully, I just had to do one emergency parts run for the Bobcat and rest of the week was pretty quiet.

While staying at the house, I was trying to use up any produce that might go bad in Lisa’s refrigerator. One night I spied the bag of cranberries. These probably wouldn’t have gone bad, but just seeing them made me crave my pork chops with cranberries recipe (and if Zweber baby craves something, Zweber baby gets it). Sorry Lisa, you can blame your future granddaughter 🙂

Here is the super easy and healthy recipe

Pork Chops with Cranberries

  • 4 bone in Zweber Farms pork chops
  • 1 bag fresh cranberries
  • 1/2 to 3/4 cup sugar
  • salt and pepper
  • 1 tbs olive oil

Salt and pepper both sides of the pork chops.

In a large skillet (with fitted lid), heat oil. Brown chops on both sides.

Add cranberries and sugar (if you want a tart dish add less sugar). Cover and simmer on low until cranberries are soft (15-20 minutes).

Serve with some brown rice, steamed veggies and a cold glass of Organic Valley milk.
