  1. Heat the olive oil in a large saucepan with a lid over medium heat, and cook and stir the onion, green bell pepper, green onions, jalapeno pepper, and garlic until softened, about 10 minutes.
  2. Stir in the pork, cherries, cilantro, lime juice, chili powder, cumin, and onion powder, and mix well. Bring the mixture to a boil, cover, reduce the heat to a simmer, and cook until the pork is cooked through and no longer pink, and the vegetables and cherries have given up their juices, about 30 minutes.
  3. Remove the lid, stir in the honey, and sprinkle with salt and pepper to taste. Simmer uncovered until the sauce reduces and the pork is tender, about 30 more minutes. The sauce won't be extremely thick.

Yum! I really like this recipe, it's a great way to use fresh cherries, the sauce is spicy and sweet, very good. I served it over hot cooked white rice. Thanks!

This was just ok for us. There was nothing wrong with it, but it didn't wow us at all. It definitely could have used a few more jalapenos.

This felt like a gourmet meal! I agree it could have used more jalapenos. But it certainly was tasty served with Spanish rice. I'll certainly make this again.

I am always searching for creative ways to use the abundance of cherries I harvest from my two large trees every year and this one was a hit with the family. I did make some slight changes to it...

This was very easy and tasty, I'm not a huge fan of cumin so therefore the flavor was not my favorite but that's just personal taste. The recipe is very good

My BFF made this while I was visiting, and I had to have the recipe. She used red bell pepper, which makes for great flavor and color, and doubled the garlic. It has great flavor...hot, bold and...
