For a nice change!! Chutney Glazed Pork Chops!!

Chutney Glazed Pork Chops!!

A simple jelly-and-mustard glaze coats pork chops that are topped with a sweet-tart chutney. Serve with rice or couscous to soak up the sauce.

Yield: 4 servings (serving size: 1 pork chop and 1/2 cup chutney)


* Chutney:

* 1/2 cup sugar

* 1/4 cup balsamic vinegar

* 1/4 teaspoon ground coriander

* 1 (3-inch) cinnamon stick

* 2 cups coarsely chopped rhubarb (about 1/2 pound)

* 1/3 cup dried cranberries

* 1/4 cup chopped green onions

* 1/4 teaspoon salt

* 1/4 teaspoon ground red pepper

* Pork:

* 1/3 cup red currant jelly

* 1 tablespoon whole-grain Dijon mustard

* 1/2 teaspoon salt

* 1/2 teaspoon black pepper

* 1/4 teaspoon ground cumin

* 4 (6-ounce) bone-in center-cut pork chops (about 1/4 inch thick)

* Cooking spray

* Thinly sliced green onions (optional)


To prepare chutney, combine first 4 ingredients in a small saucepan. Bring to a boil over medium-high heat. Add rhubarb and the next 4 ingredients (rhubarb through ground red pepper); reduce heat, and simmer 5 minutes or until rhubarb is tender. Spoon into a bowl; cover and chill at least 2 hours. Discard cinnamon stick.

Prepare grill.

To prepare pork, combine jelly and mustard in a small bowl; set aside.

Combine 1/2 teaspoon salt, black pepper, and cumin; rub evenly over pork. Place pork on a grill rack coated with cooking spray; grill 4 minutes on each side or until desired degree of doneness, basting occasionally with jelly mixture. Serve pork with chutney; sprinkle with green onions, if desired.
