Recipe-Mango Pork Chops

Mango Pork Chops

Mango and grilled pork compliment each other nicely, and this dish offers mango two ways: fresh juicy slices (grilled or not, as preferred) and a sweet and savory salsa-type sauce.

Recipe Ingredients

4 pork chops
1 large mango, divided
1 small onion
1/2 cup raisins, preferably golden raisins
2 cloves garlic, or more to taste
1 teaspoon ginger
1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper, or to taste
1/2 cup water
salt and pepper to taste

Recipe Directions

Peel the mango and then slice half and dice the other half. Set the slices aside. Chop onion and garlic.

Mix diced mango, onion, raisins, ginger, cayenne pepper, garlic, salt, pepper and water in a saucepan. Simmer until onions are soft and mixture is thick, but not dry, about 10 minutes. Add a little more water, if necessary. Set aside (this can be prepared ahead, if desired).

Preheat the grill. Trim excess fat from the chops. Lightly salt and pepper each side and grill to desired doneness. Briefly grill the mango slices, if desired. (They are good either grilled or not).

Serve chops with sauce spooned over and around them with slices on top.
