Love it! The sauce is not too sweet or too tart- perfect. The only way I strayed from the recipe was, since I didn't have a full 1/2 c. port, I topped off the little I had w/ ~1/4 c. dry sherry (I know, but it's what I had). Served it with roasted cauliflower and crusty bread. Fantastic!
Quick Pork Saute with Blackberries
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.
5 Reviews for Quick Pork Saute with Blackberries
This was an awesome meal, I actually added creme de cassis to add more flavor, I will definately make again!
I did not have any pork on hand but I wanted to try this sauce. So I pounded out 2 chicken breasts, spread with a goat cheese and herb mixture and rolled up. I browned the chicken, then finished off in the oven while I made the sauce. It was delicious! I did not have port but I did have some spiced blackberry wine and it worked well. We really enjoyed this! Since I was only making this for two people, we had leftover sauce. I think I will reduce the leftovers tomorrow into a glaze and use on some salmon fillets.
I had to use some substitutions and this was still completely delicious. I used blackberry tea instead of port, and because I didn't have extra blackberry juice beyond what I could thaw out from frozen berries, I sweetened the sauce with a hint of maple syrup and doubled the broth. What a great treat. Perfect with steamed cauliflower as a side.
This was SOOOO delish!! The sauce was addicting!! this recipe is DEFINITELY a keeper!!
