    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.

    Its from Bon Appetit Nov 2001 :) I use this as a basic fruit sauce for meat.....Sometimes I use Orange Marmalade & Rosemary instead ---sometimes I add jalapenos.......it makes for many creative ideas. The way I like to cook !

    This was great thanks. I made it using a cranberry sauce I made myself, bone in chops and used two teaspoons of Logicol rather than the butter. I thought my sauce was good, but the addtion of the wine and the fresh thyme took it to another level. My chops were around 7 ounces with the bone so I cooked them for about a minute more a side and we thought they were perfect. Thanks for posting a great recipe.
