Grilled Pork Chops With Cherry Sauce (Diabetic)


12 cherries, stemmed and pitted
4 ounces unsweetened apple juice
11 1/4 pounds boneless lean pork chops
1/4 teaspoon thyme
1 tablespoon honey
1 teaspoon balsamic vinegar
1 tablespoon cornstarch


Combine cherries and apple juice in a small saucepan over low heat for 15 minutes. While cooking sauce, heat grill. Grill pork chops approximately 34 minutes on each side until cooked through (internal temperature should be 160˚F). Pour hot apple
juice and cherries into a small food processor and add thyme, honey, balsamic vinegar, and cornstarch. Pulse a few times. Add sauce back to saucepan over low heat and stir until thickened, about 3 minutes. Pour sauce (approximately 1/2 cup) evenly over cooked pork chops and serve.
