Raspberry Pork Chops

Sharing is caring!

I saw a recipe for raspberry pork chops and decided to give it a try.

Of course, I did not make the recipe exactly like it was written.

I prefer to put my own spin on recipes because there are so many ingredients I simply do not like such as onions, mushrooms and peppers.

So here is how I made the raspberry pork chops.

 

Fresh Raspberries Make The Best Raspberry Pork Chops

I’m always looking for ways to use the fresh fruits and vegetables from the garden, especially the ones that come in so fast there is just no way to eat them all.

Raspberries are like this.

They ripen quickly over the course of two to three weeks and then they are gone – unless you have some of the fall ripening ones.

The ones I grow are the wild variety that grew on their own, so I have to make the most of them while they last.

One thing I love to make is raspberry vinegar – but it never lasts long after its made and canned.

The original recipe for raspberry pork chops that I came across years ago simply cooks the pork chops in raspberry vinegar.

I have altered the recipe, putting my own spin on it – although I do omit the fresh raspberries when they are not in season.

Frozen or canned raspberries could be used if you really wanted to.

Here is my recipe:

Raspberry Pork Chops


  • Author: Sheri Ann Richerson

Description

Fresh raspberries from the garden make the best raspberry pork chops, but if you don’t have fresh, frozen or canned raspberries also work.


Ingredients

Scale
  • 4 Pork chops
  • 1/4 cup fresh raspberries
  • 4 ounces white or herbal vinegar (I used an herbal vinegar I canned last year that had rosemary (affiliate link) and pineapple sage in it)
  • 1/4 cup butter (real butter – I use homemade)
  • Flour (affiliate link)
  • 1 teaspoon Pepper
  • 1 teaspoon Applewood Smoked Salt
  • 1 Tablespoon Herbes de Provence
  • 1 Tablespoon Garlic Powder

Instructions

  1. Rinse the fresh raspberries under cold running water (affiliate link).
  2. Gently pat them dry, then place them in a glass dish or measuring cup.
  3. Mash the raspberries so there are various sized pieces of them.
  4. Pour the herbal vinegar on top.
  5. Stir well.
  6. Cover the container with plastic wrap and sit in the refrigerator. Allow this mixture to combine for at least two hours. Overnight is ok.
  7. Rinse the pork chops under cold water (affiliate link), then coat both sides of the pork chop with flour (affiliate link).
  8. Melt the butter in the frying pan on medium high heat.
  9. Lay the pork chop in the frying pan and season the side that is facing up with the applewood smoked salt, herbes de Provence, pepper and garlic powder (affiliate link). The amount of spices you use depends on the size of the pork chops and how heavily seasoned you want them. Start light and build up from there. You can’t take seasonings away, but you can always add them.
  10. Set a timer for 45 minutes.
  11. Brown the pork chops, making sure to season the other side when you turn them over.
  12. Once both sides are brown, pour the raspberry vinegar mixture over the top of the pork chops.
  13. Turn the heat down to medium and cook one the one side for half of the time remaining on the timer.
  14. Turn the pork chops over at this point and allow them to cook until the timer goes off.
  15. Remove the pork chops from the skillet and spread the raspberry mixture in the bottom of the pan on top of the pork chops.
  16. Serve.
