A simple spice rub flavors boneless pork chops, but the sweet-tart sauce is the real star of this dish.
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
1/4 teaspoon black pepper
4 (4-ounce) boneless center-cut pork loin chops
2 teaspoons olive oil
1/3 cup chopped shallots
3/4 cup pomegranate juice
1 tablespoon sugar
1 tablespoon balsamic vinegar
How to Make It
Combine first 4 ingredients in a small bowl; sprinkle over pork chops.
Heat oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add pork chops; cook 3 minutes on each side. Remove and keep warm. Add shallots to pan; cook 45 seconds, stirring constantly. Add juice, 1 tablespoon sugar, and vinegar; bring to a boil. Cook for 5 minutes or until slightly thick. Serve pork with sauce.
Very easy and tasty recipe. Really liked the pomegranate sauce. Next time I'll make more since I ate this with rice and would loved to have more to soak the rice in. Other than that I wouldn't have changed a thing.
These are good but am not crazy about pomegranate juice. Had the juice with the chops and it was okay. Had for lunch the next day without the juice and I think I enjoyed it more. Probably won't bother to make again. Lots of other pork recipes to try.
This was a good recipe but I did take the advice of one the readers and added more pomegranate juice. My pork chops were thick so I covered with a lid and cooked for about 4 minutes per side and had no problem but if I didn't put the lid on it would have taken closer to 10 minutes per side.
This was a good recipe. My husband and I found the sauce a bit overpowering. We weren't familiar with the taste of pomegranate, I must admit. My kids gobbled it up, which is rare, so I will make it again but not regularly. I followed the recipe exactly. Served it with couscous and steamed broccoli.
I really like this, but I made some changes. I used a cup of pomegranate juice and a little less vinegar. I also used honey instead of sugar and added a little cayenne pepper. My husband and I both thought it was very tasty! I will definitely make it again.
