Pork Chops Inspired by Target!

I saw a bottle of Archer Farms Raspberry Chipotle Sauce from Target over the weekend and thought it would be the perfect combination for pork chops! I already had some raspberries sitting in the fridge so I worked up a recipe. These came out AMAZING! Sweet from the berries with just the right amount of kick from the chipotle and a bit of tangy goodness from the apple cider vinegar. The best part was how quick and easy they were! Dinner was done in about 20 minutes. Beat that Rachael Ray!


1 Tbsp olive oil
2 boneless pork loin chops
Salt and black pepper
1/4 c onions, diced
1 chipotle in adobo sauce, diced
1 tsp garlic, minced
2 tsp adobo sauce
1 c fresh raspberries
1/4 c apple cider vinegar
2 Tbsp brown sugar
1 Tbsp butter
Couscous, for serving
Parsley, for garnish


1. Season pork chops with salt and pepper on both sides. Heat oil in a Dutch oven over medium heat. Add chops and brown for 5 minutes per side. Remove chops and keep warm.

2. Add onions, chipotle, garlic, and adobo sauce. Cook for 2-3 minutes, until onions began to soften. Add the raspberries into the sauce; cook until soft, 2-3 minutes. Stir in the vinegar and brown sugar. Bring mixture to a boil, scraping up brown bits for 2 minutes. Add chops back and cook until internal temperature reaches 145°F, turning occasional to coat with sauce. Remove chops to serving platter.

3. Stir in butter and turn the heat up to high. Boil until mixture thickens, 5 minutes. Pour over pork chops and serve over couscous. Garnish with parsley.
