A note about serious food allergies

Cranberries, that small berry of sauces, juice, and thousands of Christmas decorations, isn't often paired with a weekday dinner. We're actually taking the dried version of those little suckers and making a delectable sauce, mixing the tart berry with sweet syrup. Paired with a seared bone-in pork chop and a melody of hearty root vegetables, this calorie conscious, carb conscious dish packs in the berry spirit without also packing in the pounds.

  1. 1

    Prepare the Ingredients

    Coarsely chop dried cranberries. Place in a mixing bowl and cover with ¼ cup hot water. Set aside to rehydrate at least 10 minutes. While cranberries rehydrate, trim bottoms off Brussels sprouts and halve (quarter if larger than a ping-pong ball). Peel and cut turnip into ½" dice. Stem and mince rosemary. Pat pork chops dry, and season both sides with ¼ tsp. salt and a pinch of pepper. If using chicken breasts, pat dry and season same amount.

  2. 2

    Roast the Vegetables

    Place Brussels sprouts and turnip on prepared baking sheet. Toss with 2 tsp. olive oil, rosemary, ¼ tsp. salt, and ¼ tsp. pepper. Spread into a single layer. Roast in hot oven until vegetables are caramelized and tender, 18-20 minutes. While vegetables roast, cook pork chops.

  3. 3

    Cook the Pork Chops

    Place a medium pan over medium heat and add 2 tsp. olive oil. Place pork chops in hot pan and cook until golden brown and chops reach a minimum internal temperature of 145 degrees, 5-7 minutes per side. If using chicken breasts, cook until chicken reaches a minimum internal temperature of 165 degrees, 5-7 minutes per side. Remove pork chops to a plate and rest at least 5 minutes. Reserve pan; no need to wipe clean.

  4. 4

    Make the Sauce

    Return pan used to cook pork to medium heat. Add cranberries, cranberry rehydrating liquid, ¼ cup water, maple syrup, and vegetable base to hot pan. Bring to a simmer and stir occasionally until slightly thickened, 2-4 minutes. Taste, and season with a pinch of salt and pepper if desired. Remove from burner.
