3 tablespoons olive oil
2 shallots, thinly sliced
1 pound cherries, pitted and roughly chopped
1/2 cup low-sodium chicken broth
2 tablespoons orange marmalade
1 tablespoon balsamic vinegar
1/8 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes
8 boneless pork chops, 1/2 inch thick
Kosher salt and pepper


Prep: 35 Minutes

Heat 1 tablespoon of the oil in a saucepan over medium heat. Add the shallots and cook for 3 minutes. Stir in the cherries, broth, marmalade, vinegar, and red pepper. Simmer until the sauce thickens, 6 to 8 minutes.

Season the pork with 1 teaspoon salt and 1/4 teaspoon pepper.

Heat the remaining oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. In 2 batches, cook the chops until golden brown and cooked through, 2 to 3 minutes per side.

Divide among individual plates and top with the cherry sauce.
