Spiced Pork Chops with Apple Chutney

I’ve never been a big pork chop fan, and neither has my husband.  We both agree that they often turn out dry and flavorless.  But these pork chops were full of flavor, and surprisingly moist for boneless chops.  You could, of course, use bone-in chops too.

The spice rub is delicious, but the chutney is what makes the meal!  In fact, I would consider doubling it, if you don’t mind chopping all those apples.  For such an elegant looking meal, this comes together very quickly.  The kids enjoyed it too, although the youngest preferred good old barbecue sauce instead of the apple chutney.

  2. 5 cups cubed, peeled apple (about 3 apples)
  3. 1/4 cup dried cranberries
  4. 3 tablespoons brown sugar
  5. 3 tablespoons cider vinegar
  6. 1/2 teaspoon ground ginger
  7. 1/4 teaspoon salt
  8. 1/4 teaspoon dry mustard
  9. 1/8 teaspoon ground allspice
  10. 3-5 tablespoons water
Pork
  1. 1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper

  1. To prepare chutney, melt butter in a nonstick skillet over medium-high heat.

  3. Add cranberries and the next 6 ingredients (through allspice); bring to a boil. Reduce heat, and simmer 8 minutes or until apples are tender; stir occasionally.
