Pork Chops with Blueberry Sauce

The savory chops mix so well with the sweet sauce

This is a really quick meal that works well for a weeknight when in a rush or as a main course at a large party with many courses. Although it is fancy enough to pretend like it took hours to create.

Grilled Pork Chops with Fresh Blueberry Sauce

  • 4 1″ thick pork loin chops
  • 1/2 cup cider vinegar
  • 2 tbsp Worcestershire sauce
  • 1/2 tsp green pepper
  • 1/8 tsp cayenne pepper
  • 1 tsp rosemary
  • salt
  • 1 cup blueberries
  • 1/2 cup balsamic vinegar
  • 1 tbsp brown sugar
  • 1/4 tsp fresh grated nutmeg

In a large pan mix cider vinegar, Worcestershire sauce, and 1/2 cup water. Season pork chops with salt, rosemary, green and cayenne pepper and place in marinade. Flip after 1/2 hour. Start fire in grill and cook over medium heat until done, flipping once about 12 minutes. Meanwhile heat brown sugar and balsamic in a sauce pan until reduced by half. Add blueberries and nutmeg and cook over medium heat until berries burst and sauce thickens, about 10 minutes. Serve pork chops with blueberry sauce on top.

    This could become a regular when we are entertaining at the cottage in Maine and have all those sweet wild Maine blueberries available.

  20. Mmm. I was just reading an article in Elle a Table (the Elle cooking magazine) – and by reading I mean, to the extent that I can read French i.e. not fluently – and they had a whole feature on blueberries! With unexpected things like rabbit ragu. This looks fantastic!

    Deceivingly fancy! I love it. Sounds incredible.

  33. Eva Taylor says:

    I love the alternative to the classic pork chops and apple sauce (remember the Brady Bunch?). The blueberries and balsamic are a wonderful colour to bring out the pain pork chop! Nicely done.

  34. Joanne says:

    Oh my. Pork chops with blueberry sauce?!?!? I am so intrigued…especially with all the goodies that go into it. Also, nutmeg with blueberries is the best!

    Pork is great with sweet and savory flavors, this looks like a wonderful combination.

  36. Kristy says:

    You know how we feel about our blueberry sauce! I had never thought about using it with pork chops. This is definitely going on our weeknight menu – easy and good?! I’m in!

  37. Charles says:

    Oh dude, can you still buy fresh blueberries? So unfair 😦 Looks like a good week-night dish… Just needs a big splodge of mashed potato!

  38. Oh this is a Ritchey meal – blueberries are his favorite! The blueberries, balsamic vinegar, brown sugar and nutmeg sound like a wonderful flavor combination – in addition to the marinade! Bravo!

  39. My tastebuds are now standing at attention! Fabulous combination of flavours!
    🙂 Mandy
