Cherry-Drizzled Pork Chops

Cherry-Drizzled Pork Chops

with Tomato Couscous Salad

A cherry on top isn’t just for sundaes; we’re using the fruit to dress savory pork chops in this recipe. You’ll be making a pan sauce that features both dried cherries and cherry jam for double the fruity fun. Make sure to get a little of it on the couscous salad—that sweetness is the perfect complement to the tartness of the lemon and tomatoes that get mixed in.


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

Small pot
Small Bowl
Medium Bowl
Large Pan
Paper Towel



Wash and dry all produce. Bring 2 cups water to a boil in a small pot. Halve, peel, and mince shallot. Zest and halve lemon. Halve grape tomatoes. Trim, then thinly slice scallions, keeping greens and whites separate. Finely chop parsley.

Plump Cherries

Place dried cherries in a small bowl. Pour over just enough boiling water to cover cherries (you’ll need to save 1 cup for the couscous). Set aside.

Make Couscous

Put couscous in a medium bowl. Stir in scallion whites, half the shallot, and a pinch of salt and pepper. Pour in 1 cup boiling water and cover. Set aside.

Cook Pork Chops

Heat a drizzle of oil in a large pan over medium-high heat. Pat pork dry with a paper towel. Season all over with salt and pepper. Add to pan and cook to desired doneness, 3-6 minutes per side. Remove from pan and set aside to rest a few minutes.

Make Pan Sauce

Reduce heat under pan to medium and add remaining shallot. Cook until softened, about 1 minute. Stir in stock concentrate, jam, and half the cherries along with all of their steeping water. Give everything a stir to combine, then bring to a simmer and let bubble until reduced by half. (TIP: The sauce is ready when it sticks to a spoon.) Season with salt and pepper.

Finish and Plate

Fluff couscous with a fork, then toss in tomatoes, scallion greens, remaining cherries, lemon zest, and a squeeze or two of lemon juice. (TIP: For extra flavor, add 1 TBSP butter before tossing.) Season with salt, pepper, and more lemon juice (to taste). Divide between plates and top with pork. Drizzle with pan sauce and garnish with parsley.
