Pork Chops and no not applesauce..pomegranate sauce!!
Pork chops with pomegranate sauce topped with cranberries and feta
Served with a side of salad greens and grilled baby russet potatoes.
Season the chops generously with salt and pepper. Grill the chops about 5-7 minutes on each side (depending on the thickness of the chops). When done, keep chops on a platter covered with aluminum foil and let it rest.
Meanwhile, heat about a tablespoon of oil over medium heat, add shallots (about 2 tablespoons finely chopped) stirring constantly until browned. Add pomegranate juice (1/2 cup), red wine vinegar (1/4 cup), chicken broth (1/4 cup), fresh thyme (about 1 tablespoon) and honey (1 tablespoon) and cook, stirring until the liquid is reduced by half, approx. 3-5 minutes. Reduce heat and stir in 1 tablespoon butter until it melts.
Transfer chops to plate, spoon sauce over chops and salad.
