Pork Loin Chops With Simple Savory Sauce

"I threw this together in less than 30 minutes. The outcome was raves all around the table. Always trying to come up with ways to cook chicken or pork, I finally made a sauce that my family said was "off the hook". This dish was so easy to make and was well received with my Recipe #223199."

Ready In:




  • In a 4 cup measuring cup, I combined the cranberry sauce, chili sauce, brown sugar, chili powder, garlic and onion salt with the cumin and cayenne. Mix well to incorporate the sugar.
  • In a large reseable bag, combine flour, salt and pepper. Add pork chops one at a time and shake to coat. Set on plate until all have been coated and can be cooked together.
  • In a large skillet cook pork in olive oil over medium high heat 4-5 minutes on each side or until juices run clear.
  • Pour sauce mixture over the pork and cover once it comes to a boil. Reduce heat, simmer 10 minutes.
  • Served with Rice Pilaf and a crisp green salad. YUM!
  • Hope you enjoy!

  1. I give this 5 stars because of the taste... it's really good. My 9 year old son says if there were 10 stars he'd give that. As a personal preference, I enjoy my pork chops slow cooked for a long time so they are more tender than this recipe allows, so I'll probably do it in a crock pot next time. The taste, though, was really good and my son "demands" I put 5 stars. ;)
  2. I made this in the crock pot on Hi and cooked it for 4 hours. I thought that it was a little sweet so the next time I will cut back on the brown sugar. Since I cooked it in the crock pot, I didn't do step 2.
  3. Delicious ! I made the recipe as directed using 2 boneless very thick chops. DH adored the sauce. He was still talking about it the next day..
  4. Five stars from me and the family. I made it exactly per the recipe except that I only had a 14oz can of jellied cranberry (do they make a 16oz can?), and I added a sprinkle more of chili powder and cumin. It was a little too ketchupy for me (maybe since the ratio of cranberry to chili sauce was off?), so I'd use less chili sauce if I made it again. I also had 7 pork chops, but except for crowding the pan, that didn't matter because there still was a ton of sauce - I think I might leave the cover off next time too so the sauce thickens up. With the cover on and the required time of 10 minutes, it wasn't that thick, and if I had cooked it anymore, I would have run the risk of overcooking the pork. I make these comment only to make it 5 stars as it was very, very good as is. I will definitely be making again.
  5. Yummy. I had some cranberry sauce left over from Easter so I searched & found this recipe. What I really liked about this one is the addition of the savory spices. Next time I will cut the brown sugar abit. I increased the pork chops & cut the sauce in 1/2 & found it to be plenty for our liking. Great recipe, thanks for sharing.


  1. This is wonderful and easy. Though I made a few changes, nothing big. I used whole berry sauce since that's what I had. And I didn't have brown sugar, so used white instead, 1/2 cup. I doubled the cumin and cayenne pepper because we like things spicy here. I adjusted cooking times for thick chops and threw in some crushed red peppers. I also used garlic powder and onion powder instead of salts since I rarely cook with any kind of salt. We loved this, I thought we would have some leftovers, but alas, it's all gone! In fact, I was just told that I should serve this at least once a month! Thank yous so much for sharing this!
  2. This is an easy weeknight recipe. It's just two of us so i halved the recipe with no problem. I also used a very light breading of Panko bread crumbs instead of flour. Thanks for an easy, flavorful recipe!
