If you didn’t get the last reference, well, it’s your loss for missing out on 80’s hair bands.
A few years ago, we were fortunate enough to be a guest at The Oceanaire in San Diego, right after Brian Malarkey made a splash on Top Chef. (Top Chef being our absolute favorite cooking show). Our table inquired about his favorite dish of the night, and he highly recommended the swordfish with cherries and almonds. Naturally we ordered it and were left wanting more. Seeing cherries highlighted in a savory dish opened up a world of possibilities.
Using that meal as inspiration, we created this Pan Seared Pork Chops Smothered in Balsamic Cherry Sauce recipe. It’s healthy, easy to make and is ready in under 30 minutes. This will surely make it’s way into your boneless pork chops recipes rotation.
This pan seared pork chops will have you “Swingin’ in the living room Swingin’ in the kitchen.”
