Pork Chops with Roasted Strawberry wine sauce

  • 4 Bone in Pork Chops
  • 1 tsp ground coriander
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons kosher salt, plus more to taste
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
  • 2 cups hulled and halved fresh strawberries
  • 1 teaspoon granulated sugar, plus more to taste
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1/3 cup finely chopped shallot
  • 3/4 cup Red wine ( I used the K2 red Blend from Pasaeli)
  • 1 1/2 cups chicken stock
  • 3 thyme sprigs
  • 3 tablespoons unsalted butter, cut into pieces
  1. Preheat oven to 400°F. Let pork tenderloin stand at room temperature 30 minutes. Stir together coriander, salt, and pepper in a small bowl; set aside. Toss together strawberries and sugar in a separate bowl; set aside.
  2. Heat oil in a 12-inch ovenproof stainless steel skillet over medium-high. Sprinkle coriander mixture over pork, pressing lightly to adhere. When oil is just smoking, add pork to skillet. Cook, turning occasionally, until pork is browned all over, about 8 minutes. Place strawberries around pork.
  3. Transfer skillet to preheated oven. Roast until a meat thermometer inserted in thickest portion of pork registers 130°F, 8 to 10 minutes. Reduce oven temperature to 200°F. (Do not remove skillet from oven.) Continue to roast pork and strawberries until thermometer registers 140°F, about 5 minutes. Transfer pork to a cutting board, reserving strawberries and pan drippings in skillet. Cover pork loosely with aluminum foil.
  4. Return skillet to heat over medium-high. Add shallot to pan drippings, and cook, stirring often, until pan drippings are slightly thickened, 2 to 3 minutes. Add wine, and cook, stirring and mashing strawberries with a spoon, until sauce has thickened enough to hold a clean line when a spoon is dragged across bottom of pan, 7 to 9 minutes. Stir in chicken stock and thyme sprigs, and bring mixture to a simmer over medium-high. Cook, stirring occasionally, until sauce is thick enough to coat back of spoon, 13 to 17 minutes. 
  5. Place saucepan over medium-low heat. Add butter, and cook, whisking constantly, until butter is fully incorporated, about 1 minute. Remove from heat, and season strawberry sauce with salt and sugar to taste. Cut pork into slices, and serve with strawberry sauce.
