4 bone in thick cut pork chops (12 oz. each and about 1 ¼ inch thick)
Salt and pepper (or rub of your choice)
3 Tablespoons olive oil
1 medium onion sliced
1 cup white wine or chicken broth

Blackberry Spice + Sage Red Wine Sauce:
½ cup minced sweet onion
1 tablespoon butter
½ cup dry red wine (I used a Merlo)
¼ cup Sallie’s Greatest Blackberry Spice + Sage Jam


Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Season pork chops with salt and pepper and let sit for 15 minutes. Heat a heavy skillet (cast iron works great) with the olive oil to medium high heat. Sear the chops for 7 minutes on each side. Remove chops from pan, and then add the sliced onion, sauté for 3 minutes and white wine. Put the chops back in the pan and cook 10-15 minutes longer in the oven. Cover with tin foil loosely to keep chops from drying out. Let sit for 10 minutes. 

Sauce: Sauté the onions in butter for about 10 minutes, then add the red wine, bring to a boil and let reduce by half.  Add the Blackberry Spice + Sage Jam and return to a boil, then reduce heat and simmer for 5 minutes. Plate the chops and spoon the sauce over the chops. Delicious!

NOTE: the Blackberry Spice + Sage Red Wine Sauce is also delicious served on Turkey or Chicken Breasts.

I have fixed this dish on several occasions for family and friends. The comments are always the same, the pork chops are great, but the blackberry spice jam sauce make the dish delicious.
