An aromatic, slightly piquant spice rub breathes new life into pork chops, but the sweet-sour cherry sauce is what makes this recipe a keeper.
Game plan: The cherry sauce would be equally delicious served with lamb or duck. A bonus is that the sauce can be prepared while the chops cook, making for a quick weeknight meal.
The spice rub can be made ahead and stored at room temperature for up to 3 months. It’s also great rubbed on lamb or beef.
