Sweet orange marmalade enhances the flavor of the tart cranberries in this wonderful dish. For a more intense flavor, use 1/4 cup dried cranberries or cherries instead of fresh or frozen cranberries and do not chop.
INGREDIENTS (for 2 servings):
- 1/3 cup fresh or frozen cranberries, chopped
- 2 tablespoons orange marmalade
- 1/8 teaspoon ground cloves
- 2 pork chops
- salt and pepper to taste
- 2 tablespoons honey
Preheat oven to 325 degrees F (165 degrees C). Generously grease a 9x9 inch glass baking dish.
In a bowl, mix cranberries, marmalade, and cloves. Make a pocket in each pork chop by cutting into pork toward the bone; fill pockets with cranberry mixture.
Place the pork chops in prepared baking pan. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Spoon 1 tablespoon honey over each chop. Bake uncovered about 45 minutes or until pork is no longer pink in the center.
