-------------------------------------------------

Trim fat from pork chops. Sprinkle chops evenly with garlic powder, pepper, and salt. Coat a large nonstick skillet with cooking spray, add 1 teaspoon corn oil, and heat over medium-high heat. Add chops and cook 10-12 minutes, or until nicely browned and no longer pink in the center; turn once during cooking. Remove chops from the skillet and cover to keep them warm. Decrease heat to medium-low. Add onion and 1 tablespoon water to the skillet. Cook covered for 8-10 minutes, or until the onions are tender and begin to turn golden; remove lid and stir periodically. Stir in brown sugar and cook uncovered until sugar dissolves, about 1 minute. Meanwhile, whisk together cornstarch, remaining 1/3 cup cold water, and vinegar. Stir into the onions. Stir in cranberries. Cook until sauce is bubbly and slightly thickened; stirring frequently. Add chops and heat through, about 4-5 minutes.

Preparation time: 35 minutes

Yield: 4 servings
