My Dad made these once. Lost the recipe and had to look it up. Might not be exactly what he did, but it sounds good to me.
If I had started earlier I would have done them in the slow cooker- 4 hrs on high. You can easily make your own cranberry sauce.
Simply add 1/4 c. water and 1 c sugar to 2 c whole cranberries(fresh or frozen). Cook until berries pop and sauce is slightly thick. 5 min maybe is all it takes.

8 pork loin chops, 3/4 inch thick
2 tbsp. shortening
Salt, pepper, ground cloves, nutmeg
1 (16 oz.) whole cranberry sauce
1/2 c. barbecue sauce
1/4 c. water
1/4 tsp. cornstarch
2 tbsp. cold water
In skillet, brown chops seasoned with salt, pepper, cloves and nutmeg. Drain excess fat. Combine cranberry, barbecue and 1/4 cup water. Pour over chops. Cover and simmer 1 hour. Remove chops to plate and keep warm. Combine cornstarch and 2 tablespoons water, stir into sauce in skillet. Cook until thickened. Serve over rice.


  1. Very delicious! My hsnuabd was eating spoonfuls of it like dessert and even my mother in law loved it. Although, I felt bad for her un-opened can of cranberry sauce which as soon as she left I threw in the garbage; sorry!
