Part sweet, part tangy, and all-around delicious—that’s the thick and super-flavorful cherry balsamic glaze that’s drizzled over these pork chops. It’s got just the right balance of flavors, bringing some fruit-forward sophistication for the adults while having just enough sweetness to keep things kid-friendly. Because it’s such a show-stealer, we’ve kept the sides simple with broccoli and buttered couscous so the meat and sauce can shine. And boy, do they steal the show.


Produced in a facility that processes milk, eggs, fish, shellfish, tree nuts, peanuts, wheat, and soybean.
