We love the flavor of this. It's a favorite. Quality of the cherry preserves is probably a key factor; we find Bonne Maman works really well. Also, I don't use the bottled ginger, but instead just mince fresh ginger very finely, and that works. As long as we don't overcook the pork chops, it turns out great- and even when we do, it's still so tasty!
Good dish, not spectacular but tasty and easy.
for localprincess I used "smuckers simply fruit" cherry preserves - it has natural sweetners. the recipe turned out great..
Although easy to put together, I was very disappointed at the final product. I followed the directions as written, added the cornstarch as suggested by other reviewers, it was marginal as best. I can't tell exactly what it is I didn't like but I do not I will not be making it again.
I didn't have the fresh ginger so I used the dry variety and the sauce still turned out great.
My family loved this. I used a tart preserve with whole cherries, and used sliced pork loin instead of pork chops. It was a great weekday night dinner choice.
