Braised Pork, Apricots, and Currants

Braised Pork, Apricots, and Currants with Roasted Fingerling Potatoes

This Popular Recipe is a spin on Chef Elana's mother's recipe for "holiday chicken," a warm and flavorful dish served for just about every celebratory occasion. A swap for boneless pork chops gives the simple yet impressive dish a special twist. The meat is seared, then doused in a sauce of fresh orange juice, brown sugar, and white wine, and braised with shallots, apricots, and currants for sweet and tangy balance. The aroma from this dish alone will start to bring some holiday magic to your kitchen.
