Pomegranate Glazed Pork Chops

A few days ago I received a case of POM Wonderful to try and after drinking a couple of glasses of the jewel toned juice on it's own, I decided it would pair perfectly with the pork chops I had sitting in my refrigerator. What I came up with isn't fancy or fussy to make... but it turned out absolutely delicious and will definitely become a regular dish at our house. The Honey and the kids loved them! And it was so simple that it would make a great weeknight dinner too.

4-6 Boneless Pork Chops
1 Tablespoon Olive Oil
8 oz 100% Pomegranate Juice
Juice and Zest of 1 Orange
2 Cloves Chopped Garlic
1/2 Tablespoon Ground Rosemary
3-4 Tablespoons Brown Sugar (How sweet do you want it? Use less or more to taste)
Salt and Pepper to Taste

Heat olive oil in a skillet over medium high heat. Add pork chops and brown well on both sides. Add pomegranate juice, orange juice and zest, garlic, rosemary, and brown sugar to skillet and stir to combine. Lower heat to medium and allow pork chops to simmer until the sauce has reduced and thickened and the pork chops are cooked throughly (160-170*F) This should take no longer than 30 minutes. Serve pork chops immediately with a drizzle of sauce. Serves 4-6
