Cranberry Pork Chops

Total Time
Prep 10 mins
Cook 45 mins

I can't remember where I got this, but I've been making it for a few years now. A very easy pork chop preparation. One note: the ingredients call for boneless pork chops, but the instructions say to cut the chops toward the bone. I just cut toward where I think the bone might have been. :) I sometimes use dried cranberries instead of fresh (I don't chop them if I do this) and have also used apricot or peach preserves instead of marmalade when that's what I have on hand. Enjoy!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Heat oven to 325.
  2. Generously grease a square pan, 9x9x2 inches.
  3. Mix cranberries, marmalade and cloves in small bowl.
  4. Make a pocket in each chop by cutting into pork toward the bone (or wherever you think the bone could have been. Hah!) Fill pockets with cranberry mixture.
  5. Place in pan and spoon 1 tablespoon of honey over each chop.
  6. Bake uncovered about 45 minutes or until chops are no longer pink in center.

I made this last night but really didn't care for it.....I didn't find that the pork was tender enough...and the sauce lacked something. If I make it again, I think I'll add some salsa to kick it up a bit.

I don't know if I really cared for these too much. While it was relatively easy to make, I didn't really like the cloves in there, and all in all, I didn't think the 'stuffing' added that much flavor. Chops did come out moist though. Thanks anyway.

Yum!! I made these for dinner tonight. I have a habit of taking the basic recipe and making it my own. I didn't stuff them but cooked them with the sauce over them. I used some of my homemade peach jam, and it was a tad runnier than I had hoped, but that's how it goes.... I also used frozen cranberries, and the water came out of those too. I cooked down the sauce a bit in hopes of reducing it, should have used a bit of cornstarch. But those were not due to the recipe, but was a fault of my own. The taste was wonderful, and the pork chops were nice and moist. I will make these again!!
