I had bought thin sliced pork chops last week and didn’t get a chance to make them, so they were bumped to this week. I didn’t want just boring old plain pork chops, so off to searching I went. This is definitely becoming a chore that I love doing!
The pomegranate juice and ketchup makes a simple glaze for the pork and has a sweet and tangy taste. I opted to use pomegranate-blueberry juice (it was on sale) and it was so tasy!
1 1/2 cups pomegranate juice
2 Tbsp ketchup
1 Tbsp balsamic vinegar
1/2 tsp fresh ground pepper
1/2 tsp salt
4 bonless pork loin chops (6 ozs each)
In a large saucepan, combine the pomegranate juice, ketchup, vinegar, pepper and salt. Bring to a boil ant cook until reduced to 3/4 cup, about 15 minutes. Measure out 1/4 cup and set aside.
I made my pork chops on the indoor grill, but the original recipe calls for using a broiler. Preheat the broiler. Brush the pork with half of the barbecue sauce and broil 6 inches from the heat for 4 minutes. Turn the pork over, brush with remaining sauce and broil for an additional 4 minutes or until the pork is cooked through but still juicy.
Serve with the reserved sauce on the side.

Okay… if you just told me to put ketchup and pomegranate on a pork chop I'd be wigged out. but that actually looks REALLY good. Reading your blog makes me hungry!
What a unique flavor combination for the glaze! I'll have to try it 🙂 Sounds yummy!
