Quick Pork Sauté With Blackberries

READY IN: 45mins
Recipe by Manami

A snappy sauce of shallots, port and fruity blackberry nectar transforms just any cut of meat into a special-occasion dinner--here they used pork chops. You can substitute flattened boneless chicken breast, turkey cutlets or veal scallops; adjust cooking times. EatingWell Magazine

Couldn't find blackberry nectar but used a blackberry/blueberry blend juice from northland and fresh berries. Turned out amazing!
