"I love pork chops. I love fruit with pork chops. The most common fruit accompaniment for pork is apple, but I wanted to try something a little different. I considered apricots (I love them too), but thought they are too sweet. After reading a number of different recipes, I settled on blackberries. They are tart and, I thought, would pair well with a sweet port to make the sauce." — Fight the Fat Foodie

6 (4 ounce)
boneless pork loin chops
ground black pepper
olive oil, divided
dried thyme leaves
sweet port wine
The only thing I did differently (here we go changing things) was to add some minced garlic to the recipe, the rest I did according to the author. My biggest problem with this was having to pause to go "mmm" after every bite. The taste was absolutely outstanding. The combination of port, blackberries and pork is a marriage made in heaven! My compliments to the author, this was genius and could easily be a "signature" dish in a restaurant.
I also couldn't find blackberry juice, but i did find cran/blackberry V-8, otherwise recipe was made as written. I was disappointed, it was really just Ho Hum. Not bad, but not good either, not a lot of flavor, could have been the blackberries fault, maybe they werent' in season, idk, but I will not make it again.
This dish was fantastic, I'm not a huge fan of pan fried Pork chops so, I BBQ'd the chops and then put them in the blackberry sauce. I also added a few more shallots, which gave the sauce a bit more substance. All in all, this recipe was fast, easy and delicious. kudos to the author.
Lots of great flavors in this one.
Just had this for dinner. It was a surprisingly better than I thought it would be. I used some blackberry jam I've had for months and wine that has been sitting on my counter for weeks! Don't overcook your pork!
Fantastic!!Blackberries: what a complimentary flavor! I didn't have balckberry juice, so I used white grape. My super-finicky 11-year-old son even loved it! Thank you!!!
Great Recipe!! I very rarely make the same recipe twice, just because there are so many different thing to try. But my husband actually requested this be made again- we're already thinking up different dishes to use the sauce in. I added 2 cloves of minced garlic to the onions, and used grape juice/lime juice & zest in place of the port wine.
My only "complaint" is that I would have preferred a much thicker sauce. Taste was great -- not as tangy as I thought it would be, but that's not a bad thing.
