Rosemary Pork Chops with Balsamic Strawberry Sauce


Please don’t let the bad photo deter you from making this dinner!

I was asked by Sweetbay Supermarket to develop a savory strawberry Heart Healthy Recipe for National Heart Month, and pork and strawberry immediately come to mind.

Let me tell you how amazing this recipe is…Really REALLY amazing! Once you slather the pork chop with the strawberry sauce, it is pure heaven.

I cooked these on 2 Tv Segments.

One on Daytime  (aired on 2/24)and on on Fox 4 Blend in Cape Coral (airs on 2/28) . I will try to get the videos up on my site soon.

Here is the Daytime set.

Here is what a set kitchen looks like from behind the scene

    Even my husband says this is a recipe to try. I’ve just printed it out, but since we have already finished the strawberries (smoothies), we gotta go get some more. Plus the 1/2″ thick bone-in pork chops!

    We loved the Tex-Mex Chili, BTW!!

    That looks delicious and being on must have been so much fun!

    This is nice, simple and delicious. Fruits always go well with meat. Pineapple, citrus or kiwi fruits are always good to cook with meat. 🙂

    Great recipe! I’ll be sharing it with my readers on my Weekly Food Links post this Friday. Love the fact that the cook time comes in at just 20 minutes. Thanks for sharing Leslie!
