Pork Chops With Brandied Cherries #SundaySupper

Pork Chops With Brandied Cherries
Father’s day is a time to show our love and appreciation. A day to shower our special “father” with their favorite food and treats. It’s always tough for me to come up with the perfect gift, but when it comes to food, Pork Chops with Brandied Cherries hits the dinner mark every time.

In this dish, salt, garam masala, pepper and allspice and combined to make a rub and then applied to the chops. Pork chops are sautéed and then baked and a brandy cherry sauce is made. Here butter and honey is added to coat the cherries. When served the cherries are spooned on top with a few teaspoons of the sauce.

It’s a Sunday Supper post again. Many thanks to our event manager, Em Beitel of Life Taste Good and Christie of A Kitchen Hoor's Adventures. Today’s event is all about the dads in our lives and some of their favorite meals.

Mysavoryspoon was first started in 2010 as a way to journal recipes that I had collected from cookbooks, magazines, family and friends. Most everything was savory, using legumes and whole grains. Along the way I discovered a love for baking. Now a couple times a month you might see some type of sweet pie or treat.
