Quick Pork Saute with Blackberries

http://www.eatingwell.com/recipes/quick_pork_saute_with_blackberries.html

From EatingWell:  Summer 2004, The EatingWell Diabetes Cookbook (2005)

A snappy pan sauce made with shallots, port and fruity blackberry nectar transforms basic pork chops into a special-occasion dinner. A touch of butter swirled in at the end of cooking gives the sauce a rich finish. You can substitute flattened boneless chicken breast, turkey cutlets or veal scallops for pork; adjust cooking time accordingly.

Ingredients

Preparation

  1. Season pork chops with salt and pepper. Heat 2 teaspoons oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add the pork and cook until browned and just cooked through, 2 to 3 minutes per side. Transfer to a plate. (Do not wash skillet.)
  2. Add remaining 1 teaspoon oil to the pan. Add shallot and thyme; cook, stirring, for 30 seconds. Add port (or tea), black currant nectar (or blackberry or blueberry juice), broth and vinegar; bring to a boil, scraping up any browned bits. Cook, stirring occasionally, for 5 minutes to reduce sauce and intensify flavor.
  3. Mix cornstarch and water in a small bowl. Add to the sauce and stir until lightly thickened. Reduce heat to low. Add blackberries and butter. Simmer, stirring, just until the butter has melted. Return the pork chops and any accumulated juices to the pan; turn to coat with sauce. Serve immediately.
