The rich, savory sauce makes this an elegant dish
Prep time: 10 minutes
Trim visible fat from pork chops. Sprinkle with salt and pepper.
In a large nonstick pan, warm 1 ½ teaspoons of oil over high heat. When pan is hot, brown chops on both sides, about 2 minutes per side. Remove chops from pan. Set aside.
Over medium heat, add remaining 1/2 teaspoon of oil and diced onion. Cook and stir until onion softens, about 5 minutes.
Add red wine. Cook and stir 1 minute to loosen the flavorful brown bits and mix them into the sauce.
Add tarragon and cherries. Cook and stir 1 minute to blend.
Return pork chops and any juices to pan. Cover. Simmer 9 minutes to thicken sauce and until pork chops are fully cooked (to a minimum internal temperature of 160°F).
