You don’t need to go out to enjoy restaurant-quality food. Bring it home by preparing simply seared pork and polenta with a sweet-tart cherry sauce.
Here’s what you’re going to need: Boneless pork chops, cherry jam, balsamic vinegar, veggies, quick-cooking polenta, a touch of cream cheese and some butter.
First, season those pork chops. Cook them in a non-stick frying pan until golden brown and cooked through.
This is a good time to make your polenta. Just follow the directions on the package. It’s really easy!
You can also get your veggies into the microwave.
Now, transfer the pork to a plate and cover with foil, and then make the sauce. Add cherry jam and balsamic vinegar to the pan. Add some water. You want a thin but shiny sauce. It will only take a minute.
Just before serving, add some cream cheese and butter to the cooked polenta.
Put the polenta on a plate. Top with the pork and sauce, and then add a side of veggies.
That’s it. Simple and so good!
