Total Time
20 Mins
4 servings (serving size: 1 pork chop and about 2 tablespoons sauce)

A simple spice rub flavors boneless pork chops, but the sweet-tart sauce is the real star of this dish.

How to Make It

Step 1

Combine first 4 ingredients in a small bowl; sprinkle over pork chops.

Step 2

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.

This is the second time I have ever cooked meat. It was really easy. My husband and I judge things on if we would crave them, and agreed we would.

This is my favorite cooking light recipe! I make it at least once a month. The pork and pan sauce is quick and easy yet elelgant. I always serve with baked sweet potatoes.

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.
