A note about serious food allergies

Cherry, the stuff of Neil Diamond songs and the pride of Traverse City, Michigan, shines here, with its subtle sweetness and wonderful flavor. It gets mixed with balsamic vinegar, so a bit more sweet and a whole lot more tang, and then placed on top of a succulent pork chop. They got the ways to groove us, cherries. (Sorry, Neil.)

  1. 1

    Prepare the Ingredients

    Cut broccoli into bite-sized pieces.

    Pat pork chops dry, and season both sides with 1/4 tsp. salt and a pinch of pepper.

  2. 2

    Roast the Broccoli

    Place broccoli on prepared baking sheet and toss with 2 tsp. olive oil, garlic salt, and a pinch of pepper.

    Spread into a single layer. Roast in hot oven, 8 minutes.

    Carefully, remove baking sheet from oven. Top broccoli evenly with panko. Baking sheet will be hot! Use a utensil.

    Roast again in hot oven until broccoli is tender and panko is toasted, 7-9 minutes.

    While broccoli roasts, cook pork chops.

  3. 3

    Cook the Pork Chops

    Place a medium non-stick pan over medium heat and add 2 tsp. olive oil.

    Add pork chops to hot pan. Cook until golden brown and chops reach a minimum internal temperature of 145 degrees, 5-7 minutes per side.

    Remove from burner. Rest, 3 minutes.

    While pork chops cook, make glaze.

  4. 4

    Make the Cherry Balsamic Glaze

    Combine balsamic vinegar, cherry jam, and a pinch of salt in a small pot. Place over medium heat and bring to a simmer.

    Once simmering, stir often until liquid is reduced by half and thickens slightly, 2-3 minutes.

    Remove from burner and stir in butter. Set aside to thicken, 3 minutes.

  5. 5

    Finish the Dish
