PAN GRILLED PORK CHOPS

AND CRANBERRY MANGO CHUTNEY

 

Ingredient for 4 servings:

Chutney:

1 red onion, diced

2 mangos, peeled and diced

2 navel or valencia oranges, peeled and diced

1 red bell pepper, diced

1 cup dried cranberries

2/3 cup brown sugar

1 tablespoon gingerroot, peeled and minced

1 small hot chili pepper, seeded and minced

 

4 bone-in loin pork chops

Kosher salt and freshly ground white pepper

2 tablespoons corn oil

 

Directions:

Chutney: Combine all the ingredients in a heavy, non-reactive saucepan.  Cover and heat to a simmer.  Uncover and cook slowly until all the moisture has evaporated stir every few minutes.  This process will take about 30 minutes.

 

Place in a glass preserving jar.  Allow to cool on a rack

 

Chops: Remove the chops from the refrigerator an hour before grilling.  Trim off excess fat and lightly season with salt and pepper.

 

Preheat a cast-iron stove top grill for 15 minutes. Preheat an oven to 275 degrees.

 

Blot the moisture from the chops and lightly coat with oil.  Grill for 4  minutes on each side.  Place chops on a bake sheet and roast in the oven for 10 minutes.

 

Serve the chops with cooled chutney.   Seal the remaining chutney and refrigerate for future use.
