I usually do add canned fruit, such as pineapple or mandarin oranges to my teriyaki dishes. Using cherries was a complete, but yummy experiment and my middle son (who is picky and also claims to not like cherries) had three helpings.
WHAT YOU NEED:
- 6-8 pork chops
- A marinade of bottled teriyaki sauce and 8-12 ounces juice from a jar of maraschino cherries (reserve cherries for later)
- Marinade the pork chops overnight or for at least four hours in the combined teriyaki and cherry sauce.
- Lightly salt and grill. Or bake in oven with more sauce in the pan and turn frequently.
- Serve with the maraschino cherries on top.
