Cranberry, Orange, and Pecan Roll-ups

Sometimes my husband comes home from Costco with enough Listerine to give us fresh breath until 2013 and sometimes he comes home with a blender that can chop up a golf ball. He might have to hide the blender when golf season comes around…

You never know what he’s going to come with. The other day he came home with a huge bag of dried cranberries. Cranberry, Orange, and Pecan Roll ups - the-girl-who-ate-everything.comWhich is why I’m sharing these Cranberry and Orange Pecan Roll ups. Yum!!

    • Salt and pepper
    • 1/4 cup flour
    • 2 tablespoons butter
    • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
    • 1 large onion, halved, sliced
    • 2 cups coarsely chopped apple
    • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
    • 1/2 cup apple cider or apple juice
    • 3 tablespoons brown sugar
    • 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
    • Dash ground allspice
    • 1/3 cup dried cranberries

    Preparation:
    In a large skillet, heat butter over medium heat. Add onions and sauté for 4 to 6 minutes, until lightly browned.

    Remove onions to a plate and set aside. Add olive oil to the skillet.

    Sprinkle pork chops with salt and pepper then dredge in flour. Brown the pork chops for about 2 minutes on each side.

    Meanwhile, combine chopped apples with lemon juice, apple cider, brown sugar, and spices.

    Pour the apple mixture over the pork chops, add the onions back to the skillet, and bring to a simmer.

    Serves 4 to 6.
