Instructions

Pear Chutney

  1. In a medium sized pan add cranberry juice, apple cider vinegar and honey; stir to mix. Add pears, fennel, butternut squash and ginger slices. Bring to a boil over medium-high heat, then reduce to medium heat. Cook for 10 minutes, until pears and fennel are crisp-tender. Add pomegranates, cover and cook another 3 minutes, or until butternut squash is tender but not mushy. Remove ginger slices and discard.
  2. Turn off heat and stir in 1 teaspoon mustard. Set aside.

Spiced Pork Chops

  1. In a small bowl combine all spice ingredients; garlic powder, onion powder, paprika, cinnamon, chili powder, salt, and pepper. Evenly sprinkle 1/4 teaspoon of seasoning on each side of the pork.
  2. Heat a large pan over medium heat. Add two tablespoons olive oil to a pan. Once hot carefully add pork chops to pan. Cook 3 minutes on one side, flip and cook for another 3 minutes. Turn off the heat and then lightly drizzle about 1/4 teaspoon maple syrup on the tops of each pork chop. For medium rare, cook to an internal temperature of 135-140°F (followed by a three-minute rest). If you like your pork a little more done, you can cook them to an internal temperature of 160°F.

Serving

  1. Serve one pork chop topped with pear chutney. Garnish with freshly sliced mint leaves and cracked black pepper. Enjoy!
