DIRECTIONS

SEASON pork with salt and ground black pepper, if desired. Heat oil in large, nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add pork and onion; cook pork quickly on both sides until browned. Remove pork from skillet.

ADD Apple Juicy Juice® 100% juice and sugar to skillet; stir until sugar is dissolved. Stir in cranberries, garlic and thyme; cook, stirring occasionally, for 2 minutes. Return pork to skillet; reduce heat to low. Cover; cook for 5 minutes or until pork is no longer pink in center. Sprinkle with nuts before serving.
