2 tablespoons chili powder
1 teaspoon cayenne -- or to taste
1 teaspoon kosher salt
1/2 teaspoon black pepper
4 6-8 oz. bone-in pork sirloin chops -- 1-inch thick
2 tablespoons vegetable oil
2 tablespoons shallots -- minced
1/2 cup zinfandel
3 cups blackberries
1/4 cup chicken broth
2 tablespoons sugar -- or to taste
2 tablespoons unsalted butter
2 teaspoons Wondra Quick-mixing flour

Combine chili powder, cayenne, salt and pepper; rub onto chops.

Heat oil in a large saute pan over medium-high heat.

Add chops and saute 4 min. on each side. Cover, reduce heat to medium-low, and cook 5-7 min. Remove chops, cover and keep warm in a 200º oven.

Saute shallots in the pan over medium-high heat about 2 min.

Deglaze pan with wine, scraping up any browned bits; add berries, broth, and sugar.

Bring to a boil, simmer 3 min. then coarsely mash.

Add Wondra flour and simmer sauce till slightly thickened.

Add butter and stir.

Add chops back to pan and heat through.
