  1. Season the pork with the lemon pepper. Cook the pork in a 10-inch nonstick skillet over medium heat for 20 minutes or until it's well browned on both sides and cooked through. Remove the pork from the skillet and keep warm.
  2. Heat 1 tablespoon butter in the skillet. Add the garlic and cook until it's tender. Stir the stock, vinegar and cranberries in the skillet and heat to a boil. Cook for 10 minutes or until the sauce is slightly thickened.
  3. Stir in the remaining butter. Serve the pork with the sauce.

I mostly eyeballed the ingredients and added them to taste, but this was a really good recipe. Even my husband, who doesn't like meat and fruit combinations, thought the savory flavor of the vi...

I gave this recipe three stars because it was a happy medium. The meat turned out really well and we all enjoyed it. However, the sauce did not work for me and I made it exactly like the recipe....

I gave this 3 stars for the sauce. I will try this with pork tenderloin next time. The 20min cooking time was way too long for the pork chops. They were very dry.
