Pork Chops with Peach-Ginger Chutney


This was lunch yesterday and it was good! With ripe peaches everywhere, it’s hard not to be inspired.

The chutney is quick and easy to put together and has a fantastic sweet-savory flavor that goes amazingly wellwith the chops.

Another quick meal to keep you out of the kitchen and enjoying summertime fun. Excuse me, I have to get back to mine.

Combine the peaches, ginger, shallot, sugar, thyme and a pinch of salt and pepper and 1 Tablespoon of water in a small saucepan. Bring to a boil over medium-high heat. Cover, reduce the heat to low and simmer, stirring occasionally, until the peaches have collapsed and released their juices, about 20 minutes; discard the ginger. Cover and set aside.

Meanwhile, combine the flour, 1 teaspoon of salt and 1/4 teaspoon pepper in a wide shallow dish and stir to combine. Season the pork chops on both sides with salt and pepper. Dredge the chops in the flour mixture, shake off any excess and transfer to a clean plate. Discard any remaining flour. Heat the oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Arrange the pork chops in a single layer and cook, turning once, until deep golden brown all over and cooked through (time will vary depending on the thickness of your chops).

Mash the peach chutney with a potato masher until slightly chunky. Season to taste with salt and pepper.

Transfer the pork chops to plates, top with the chutney and serve.

  3. Pork,peaches, ginger…a wonderful combination. The weather has cooled down a bit here, the summer schedule has lightened, and I am ready again to begin preparing food that is a feast for the taste buds, this would fit on that menu nicely!

  4. I’m not a huge ginger fan but this looks like something my hubby would really enjoy! And who knows, I like ginger snaps, so maybe the wonderful flavor combination with the peaches and thyme might bring me around!

    I made this for dinner tonight and it was really good! I love the flavor combination. The chutney was so delicious that next time I will definitely double the amount. Another minor change I’ll make next time around is to use about half as much flour since there was a lot left over. Thanks for the great recipe. I will make this again.

    Peaches are very good in our area now, and I have been looking for different ways to use them, aside from good old Texas peach cobbler. This looks like a great combination with the peaches and pork chops.
    Thanks for this one. Thanks also for the reply to my request.

  18. People deserve good life time and loans or just short term loan can make it better. Because people’s freedom relies on money.
