We really did not like this. The pork tasted exceptionally strong, so I wonder if there was something wrong with our pork chops. By itself, the cranberry sauce that the pork simmered in was delicious. I like the taste of cherry or pineapple with pork a lot better.

Quite tasty. Use thin chops though. I also didn't have fresh or frozen berries, so I used the canned whole berry cranberry sauce and omitted the sugar. I would recommend putting in half a large onion, it adds a little oompf. As a twist, substitute some frozen or canned tart cherries and some herbes de provence(and a little cornstarch to thicken it at the end)

Amazing! Devine! We used orange juice instead of sugar, and added a hot pepper to give it some kick...will definitely make this again (and it's sooo pretty; perfect for a dinner party!)

This was delicious!!! I followed others' lead and used a can of whole berry cranberry sauce, put in half the sugar and reduced the salt to 1/2 tsp. I misread the pepper and put in 1 full tsp instead of 1/4 but it was actually good - gave it a kick. The meat was tender and moist, easy to make, perfect for a Friday night dinner. WIll DEFINITELY make this again.

I've been making this recipe AS IS over two years now and we realize how much we love it every single time. The chops are tender and very juicy. We didn't need a knife. Awesome dish, PLEASE give it a whirl. UPDATE: May 2010 / We've been decreasing the amount of white sugar and adding a little brown instead. Regardless, these are never not a hit. With anyone.

I wasn't so sure if my family would like this, but I had all the ingredients on hand so I gave it a try. I was very pleasantly surprised by how good (and easy) it was! It is nice to have another use for fresh cranberries besides cranberry sauce.

This was delicious. I cut the amount of sugar to 1/2 cup based on other reader reviews and used Splenda to reduce calories. The chops were moist and tender and the cranberry sauce was really tasty. I served with brown rice and green beans with almonds. My daughter (usually not a big meat eater) asked for seconds.
