photo by MollyLin
- Ready In:
- 6 boneless sirloin pork chops (1/2 in thick)
- 16 ounces jellied cranberry sauce
- 1 (12 ounce) bottle chili sauce
- 3⁄4 cup light brown sugar, packed
- 1⁄2 teaspoon new mexico chile powder
- 1⁄2 teaspoon cumin
- 1⁄4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
- 1⁄4 teaspoon garlic salt
- 1⁄4 teaspoon onion salt
- 1⁄3 cup flour
- 1⁄2 teaspoon salt
- 1⁄2 teaspoon black pepper
- 3 tablespoons olive oil
- 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!

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. ;)
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.
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.
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!
