Cranberries can be momentary pleasures, just around for late autumn - that is, unless you think to stock ahead. Buy a packet or two for the freezer so you can make this quick supper all year long. (Or out of season, look for frozen whole cranberries in the freezer case of your local market.) Recipe by Nancy Baggett for EatingWell

Prep: 30 minutes | Total Time: 30 minutes
  • 1/4 teaspoon
    dried thyme leaves
  • 1/4 teaspoon
    salt, divided
  • 1/4 teaspoon
    freshly ground pepper, divided
  • boneless pork loin chops, 1-1 1/4 pounds; trimmed of fat
  • 2/3 cup
    cranberry juice cocktail , or orange juice
  • 2 1/2-3 tablespoons
    clover or other mild honey
  • 2 teaspoons
    canola oil
  • 1/4 cup
    onion, chopped
  • 1 cup
    cranberries, fresh or frozen, thawed, coarsely chopped
  1. Mix thyme and 1/8 teaspoon each salt and pepper in a small bowl. Sprinkle both sides of pork chops with the thyme mixture.
  2. Stir cranberry juice and 2 1/2 tablespoons honey in a 1-cup glass measure until well blended.
  3. Heat oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat until hot but not smoking. Add the chops and cook until browned on both sides, 2 to 3 minutes per side. Push the chops to one side of the pan, add onion to the empty half and cook, stirring, until the onion is soft and beginning to brown, 1 to 2 minutes. Pour half the juice mixture into the pan. Add cranberries. Reduce heat to medium and cook, turning the chops occasionally, until cooked through, 2 to 4 minutes. Transfer the chops to a serving plate and tent with foil to keep warm. Add the remaining juice mixture to the pan. Increase heat to high and cook until the mixtures reduces to form a syrupy sauce, about 2 minutes. Season with the remaining 1/8 teaspoon salt and pepper and up to an additional 1/2 tablespoon honey to taste. Spoon the sauce over the chops.
