Made this for dinner tonight and it was a hit! I didn't have sherry, so I just used chardonnay in the marinade and it was fine. Also, I used half a small jalapeño instead of a serrano pepper, and it had just enough heat for us. I imagine that a whole serrano pepper might be way too much, especially if you are planning to feed this to children. As we made it, my two-year-old happily ate some of the pork and picked the blueberries out of the salsa. I agree with the other reviewer that said this is a great meal to make for company, because it seems really special, but it is super easy.

Take 5 minutes in the morning to get these pork chops marinating so they're ready to grill the same night or even the next day.
6 Reviews for Teriyaki Pork Chops with Blueberry-Ginger Relish
The first taste was an explosion for my tastebuds.
The combination of the spice from the ginger pepper, shallot and cilantro duel with the sweet from the blueberries. A perfect match!
I picked 10 lbs. of blueberries the day before I made this relish. By chance I discovered this recipe and it will be a regular on my table.
Great alternative to using blueberries for fatty desserts and baked goods. This came together very quickly and tasted spectacular! We had a guest over and I was very pleased because with the blueberries this has the feel of a special dish.
I'm surprised there's not more reviews for this one! It's outstanding! The pork tenderloins were super flavorful with the marinade (we brushed some on to boost the flavor early in grilling). The relish was fresh and really was fabulous in combination with the pork. Would definitely make this again.
The Blueberry Ginger Relish was absolutely DELICIOUS! But, I didn't like it at with the pork. It would have been much better with fish. I usually put out a variety of relishes during the holiday season to go with our turkey. I believe this would be just as good with turkey as my Cranberry Relish. This relish will be on the table this year. Of course, I have to buy the blueberries now and freeze them. I gave this a 4 star because the combination of the relish with the pork wasn't quite right!
