4 servings (serving size: 3 ounces pork and 1/4 cup sauce)

A salty-sweet sauce is a rich match for pan-roasted pork. Serve this dish with roasted red onions and mashed sweet potatoes. You can use green grapes, but the sauce won't be as rich, or as pretty.

How to Make It

Step 1

Preheat oven to 450°.

Step 2

Heat 1 teaspoon oil in a medium saucepan over medium heat. Add shallots and garlic; sauté 3 minutes or until tender. Add grapes and next 4 ingredients (grapes through five-spice powder). Bring to a boil; reduce heat, and simmer 15 minutes. Cool 10 minutes. Place grape mixture in a blender; process until smooth.

Step 3

Heat 1 teaspoon oil in a large cast-iron skillet over medium-high heat. Sprinkle pork with salt and pepper. Add pork to pan; cook 5 minutes, browning on all sides. Insert meat thermometer into thickest portion of pork. Bake pork at 450° for 12 minutes or until thermometer registers 155°. Tent with foil; let stand 10 minutes before slicing. Serve with sauce.

Like applesauce in appearance, making you think of the classic pork-and-applesauce duo, but with a wonderful savory/salty element from the soy sauce. Delicious, and I want to try the grape sauce in other recipes too. Served with roasted asparagus and couscous.

I tried this last night for my family and it was a big hit, even for my very picky toddler. Best of all it was very easy and quick to prepare.
