Sweet Taste of Summer Pork

Cooking Recipes Catalogue

Pork is an excellent source of thiamin, a vitamin critically linked to energy production. Having cherries to cook with in the middle of winter has become a great treat. Dried cherries are usually found in the dried fruit section of the supermarket. This

INGREDIENTS (for 2 servings):


  • Combine the chicken broth, brandy, cherries, thyme, and allspice in a small, heavy saucepan. Cover and simmer over low heat until the cherries are plump and tender, about 10 minutes.
  • Place the pork between two sheets of plastic wrap and pound until 1/2 inch thick.
  • Melt the butter in a large, heavy skillet over medium-high heat. Season the pork with a little salt and freshly ground black pepper and cook until just brown, about 1 1/2 minutes per side. Transfer the pork to a plate.
  • Add the minced shallot to the skillet and stir for 30 seconds. Stir in the cherry mixture and bring to a boil. Add the milk and simmer until the mixture reduces to a saucelike consistency, about 4 minutes. Season the sauce lightly with salt and freshly ground black pepper.
  • Return the pork and any juices on the plate to the skillet. Simmer until the pork is cooked through, about 1minute. Transfer to a platter and serve.
