You Need to Try This Pork Chops with Strawberry Sauce Recipe

Strawberries and pork are a flavor combination that not only tastes fantastic, but also help make a super easy recipe for busy weeknights. If you've never tried strawberry and pork together, you're about to have a fantastic experience. Pork can go with a wide variety of flavors. It's often paired with sweet tastes, like honey.

This recipe uses frozen strawberries. If you have access to fresh strawberries, those can work as well. The important thing is that you have sufficient juice for this recipe. We've chosen frozen strawberries primarily for their accessibility. Some parts of the country only have access to fresh strawberries during parts of the year.

In terms of other ingredients, you'll only need a few. You likely already have sugar, vanilla extract, and unsalted butter on hand. You'll just need to buy the cornstarch and pork chops. With an ingredients list that simple and affordable, what's not to love?
