SUMMER HOT LUNCH RECIPE WAGON: Pork with Cumberland Sauce

For a simple side dish, steam yellow squash and zucchini, and toss it with butter and parsley

4 ½ inch thick rib or loin pork chops ( about 6 ounces each)

1 tablespoon vegetable oil

¼ cup red-currant jelly

2 tablespoons ruby port

1 teaspoon cornstarch

2 teaspoons lemon juice or lemon slices

1 teaspoon finely grated lemon peel

Trim and discard any excess fat from pork chops.  In a large skillet heat oil over moderate heat.  Add the pork chops and cook, turning them occasionally, about 6 minutes or until the juices run clear.

Meanwhile, in a small saucepan, melt jelly over moderate heat.  In a cup mix port and cornstarch until smooth.  Stir the mixture into the melted jelly.  Cook until thickened and bubbly, stirring constantly about 5 minutes. Stir in lemon peel and lemon juice.

Transfer the pork chops to a warm serving platter.  Pour the sauce over the chops, garnish with lemon slices.  Pack warm in a heated meal tote for a hot lunch to go.
