4 chops



  • salt to taste

  • 10 black peppercorns, roughly cracked

  • 4 (4 ounce) pork tenderloin chops

  • 2 teaspoons olive oil


  • cup frozen wild blueberries

  • ¼ cup balsamic vinegar

  • 1 tablespoon white sugar

  • 2 tablespoons water

  • 2 teaspoons cornstarch


  1. Sprinkle salt and cracked pepper on pork. Heat oil in a heavy saucepan over medium-high heat. Add pork and cook quickly on both sides to sear, about 1 minute per side. Reduce heat to medium-low and cover the pan. Cook for about 5 minutes; turn pork over and continue cooking until no longer pink inside, 5 to 7 minutes more.

  2. Meanwhile, combine blueberries, balsamic vinegar, and sugar in a small pot. Combine water and cornstarch together in a small bowl and add to the pot. Bring glaze to a boil, about 5 minutes, and stir until slightly thickened. Reduce heat and simmer until pork is finished, 5 to 7 minutes more.

  3. Serve pork with accompanying glaze.
