Another recipe from my Aunt's collection. I'm not sure where she orginally got it from, but it is delicious. This recipe doubles very easily.

Yum! I made a couple of changes such as using a pork loin instead of chops and upping the sauce to 1 c each of wine and cranberry. In a last minute finishing dinner frenzy read the recipe for the thyme and only added 1 t instead of tripling it, it was actually just right for us as added. We will be making this again. If using chops it would be a super fast weekday choice more exciting than the usual. Served with soft buttered rolls and salad.

We had this for dinner last night. Hubby really liked it and had seconds. I didn't use any butter, but used butter flavored Pam and it was still really good. I served it over wild rice. Would definitely make again.
