Pork Chops with Fruit Chutney

“The fruit and mint in this recipe counteract the acidity of the wine, and the pork is good vehicle for all of the flavors. Enjoy!”

-Katie Wetzel Murphy, AVV Ambassador and Family Partner

Pork Chops:
4 boneless 1” thick cut pork chops
¼ cup soy sauce
½ cup fresh raspberries
1 inch piece fresh ginger, diced
12 mint leaves, stacked and sliced

Fruit Chutney:
8 plums, pitted & quartered
6 scallions, sliced
2 Tbls. cider vinegar
2 Tbls. brown sugar
sliced mint pepper and salt to taste

Mash raspberries, mix with soy sauce, sliced ginger, and sliced mint leaves, well in a glass bowl. Refrigerate and marinate pork chops for at least one hour, up to six hours.

Remove pork chops from marinade, reserve marinade. Grill pork chops until just pink inside, about 12 to 15 minutes depending on thickness. Combine reserved marinade and fruit chutney, and bring to a simmer, then cook on low for about 5 minutes to combine all the flavors. Serve over pork chops with AVV Cabernet Franc.
