Simple preparation using a minimal number of good ingredients. How can you go wrong? I have made this with grilled pork tenderloin as well (flatten the loin out a bit and grill over med/high heat for about 5 minutes per side) and love it just as much. Don't over cook the pork, you want it pink and tender. Yum

***Rating is for sauce only*** I intend to make this again some day with the pork tenderloin. I made the sauce (minus the chicken broth) for ham steaks I baked in the oven. This is a keeper, such a nice contrast sweet/tart & salty. Thanks for the post!

This was pretty good. I skipped the dried cherries, but otherwise made as written. Thanks for sharing!
