Ginger and Apple Chutney Pork Chops

– Ingredients-

2 teaspoons olive oil
1 whole onion, thinly sliced
2 whole apple, peeled and sliced
1 whole red pepper, diced small
1 1/2 tablespoons fresh ginger, minced
1/4 teaspoon allspice
1 pinch cayenne pepper
2 cups apple juice, unsweetened
1 teaspoon red wine vinegar
1 pinch sea salt
1 pinch black pepper
4 pork chops

– Directions –
  1. Preheat oven to 375°F
  2. Place skillet over medium high heat. When hot, add oil and brown the pork chops on both sides. Remove from skillet and set aside.
  3. Reduce heat to medium and add the onions, red pepper and ginger to the skillet. Stir until the onions are translucent and soft – approx. 5 minutes. Add the allspice and cayenne and stir for a minute or two. Add the apple juice and vinegar. Bring to a boil. Scrape the bottom of the skillet to loosen all the brown bits, then add the sliced apples. Reduce heat and simmer for five to seven minutes to cook the apples and thicken the mixture.
  4. Add the pork chops onto the top of the apple mixture, and place the skillet in the preheated oven for approx. 10 minutes, just until the pork chops are no longer pink in the middle.
  5. Season to taste with salt and pepper. Serve chops topped with a spoonful of the hot apple ginger chutney.
