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

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

Ingredients for Fruit Chutney:
8 plums, pitted & quartered
6 scallions, sliced
2 Tbsp. cider vinegar
2 Tbsp. brown sugar
Sliced mint
Pepper and salt to taste

Method of Preparation:
Mash raspberries in a glass bowl. Mix berries with soy sauce, sliced ginger, and sliced mint leaves. Add pork chops to bowl of marinade and refrigerate meat 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 ingredients, 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.
