"A different, yet delicious, combination of sweet strawberries and powerful garlic with a hint of cayenne. These breakfast chops are not for weak taste buds. These chops will wake up any tired mouth."

I prepared this recipe initially for dinner and served it over lightly sauted pork chops. The strawberry sauce was exotic and distinctly asian in flavor, and I have since had many repeat reques...

This recipe sounds really wacky, but it works well. I made this with raspberry jam instead. Only suggestion I would make would be to lightly fry the garlic first.
