Preparation Time: 30 minutes
  • 4 (3 oz) bone-in center cut pork chops
  • ¼ tsp salt
  • 2 tsp olive oil
  • 1 cup onion, diced
  • 1 cup (8 oz) dry red wine
  • 1 tsp dried tarragon
  • 2 cups dried cherries
Trim visible fat from pork chops. Sprinkle with salt and pepper. In a large non-stick pan, warm 1 ½ tsp of oil over high heat. When pan is hot, brown chops on both sides, about 2 minutes per side. Remove chops from pan and set aside. Over medium heat, add remaining ½ tsp of oil and diced onion to non-stick pan. Cook and stir until onion softens (about 5 minutes). Add red wine. Cook and stir for 1 minute. Add tarragon and cherries. Cook and stir for another minute to blend. Return pork chops and any juices to pan. Simmer 9 minutes to thicken sauce and until pork chops are fully cooked (minimum internal temperature of 160° F). Serve immediately.
