This dish brings out the excellent affinity between pork and fruit. Pork chops are pan-seared, then served with a deliciously fruity blackberry and port sauce. Serve with mashed potatoes, rice or anything you fancy.
If blackberry juice is unavailable, use blueberry juice. If fresh blackberries are unavailable, use frozen.
Good stuff - I used blueberry juice, makes a great 'different' meal. Keep at least 2 shallots for flavour even if only serving for 2! Easy to prepare. - 31 Aug 2010
Made it just with fresh picked blackberries. Liquidised blackberries and added water to make juice, then used the rest whole as receipe. Really enjoyable summer meal. - 08 Aug 2015
The only thing I did differently (here we go changing things) was to add some minced garlic to the recipe, the rest I did according to the author. My biggest problem with this was having to pause to go "mmm" after every bite. The taste was absolutely outstanding. The combination of port, blackberries and pork is a marriage made in heaven! My compliments to the author, this was genius and could easily be a "signature" dish in a restaurant. - 24 Jun 2010 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
