Ingredients

Quick Pork Saute with Blackberries
4 oz  boneless pork chops
0 1/4 tsp  salt
0 1/4 tsp  black pepper
3 tsp  Oil, olive, extra virgin
0.3333 cup  shallots, chopped
1 tbsp  fresh thyme
0 1/2 cup  port wine
0 1/2 cup  Juice, blueberry
0 1/2 cup  chicken broth, low sodium
2 tbsp  balsamic vinegar
1 tsp  cornstarch
2 tsp  cold water
1 cup  fresh blackberries
2 tsp  Butter, unsalted
Directions
  1. Season pork chops with salt and pepper.
  2. Heat 2 teaspoons oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium high heat. Add the pork and cook until browned and just cooked through, 2 to 3 minutes per side.
  3. Transfer to a plate. (Do not wash skillet.) add remaining 1 teaspoon oil to the pan. Add shallot and thyme, and cook, stirring, for 30 seconds.
  4. Add port (or tea), black currant nectar (or blackberry or blueberry juice), broth and vinegar, and bring to a boil, scraping up any browned bits. Cook, stirring occasionally, for 5 minutes to reduce sauce and intensify the flavor.
  5. Mix cornstarch and water in a small bowl. Add to the sauce and stir until lightly thickened.
  6. Reduce heat to low. Add blackberries and butter. Simmer, stirring, just until the butter has melted.
  7. Return the pork chops and any accumulated juices to the pan, turning to coat with sauce. Serve immediately.
