Fresh grapes are the key to this simple dish.

Pork Chops with Grapes

  • 4 pork chops 1″ thick
  • 2 cups small grapes
  • 2 tbsp garlic minced
  • 1 cayenne pepper diced fine
  • 6-8 leaves basil cut into thin ribbons
  • 1/4 cup chicken stock
  • 2 tbsp sherry
  • Salt/pepper
  • 2 tbsp olive oil

Season meat with salt and pepper and let stand 30 minutes. In an oven safe frying pan big enough to hold all the meat in one layer heat olive oil over medium heat. Sear chops on both sides then add garlic, cayenne pepper and grapes and stir well. Add stock and mix again then place pan in oven at 350 degrees and bake until meat is done and grapes have plumped , about 20 minutes, flipping once and stirring to unstick any grapes. Place pan back on stove top and add sherry and basil. Bring to a simmer and cook until combined. Serve chops topped with grapes.
