Simmered Cranberry Pork Chops
This is a very simple recipe that is really yummy! My husband and I really liked this, but my son thought the sauce was too tangy. I had some fresh cranberries from a farmer's market basket I got a little while ago and had no idea what to do with them until I saw this recipe! It worked really well! I had to reduce the sauce after it simmered about 30 minutes and was still too soupy, so I let it boil uncovered about 10 minutes to get the sauce to the right consistency and that worked well for me. I used 4 large, thick cut pork chops and it filled up my largest non-stick pan so that worked for me!
