AJ was incredulous when I told him that I was making pork chops with blueberry sauce. Sure he was excited about pork chops. The man loves a juicy cut of meat. But the blueberry sauce gave him pause. I told him to trust me on this one, as the spices in the rub and the touch of maple syrup in the sauce will add just a tinge of sweetness that will work well with the pork. Making the pork chops in Anolon’s 14-inch French skillet was great because I could fit all the thick cut pork chops into the pan, and once I moved them to a plate to rest, I could easily deglaze with the blueberries and maple syrup. The blueberries have an earthier flavor than a lot of other berries and works well with the rosemary and coriander. I told him to expect more of a savory sweetness, perfect to go with the pork. And with one taste, he agreed with me. Get the recipe for these pork chops over at the Anolon site!
