Fruited Pork Chops
Spicy barbecue sauce makes a match with fruit and pork chops for a quick skillet supper. Accompany with rice or couscous, and a green salad.
6 boneless pork chops, 3/4-inch thick
1/8 cup vegetable oil
1 (16-ounce) can sliced peaches, drained
1/2 cup apricot or raspberry preserves
1/4 cup western-style barbecue sauce
1 tablespoon finely shredded orange peel
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon ground allspice
1/2 teaspoon minced garlic
1/4 teaspoon ground pepper
- Heat oil in large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Brown chops about 2 to 3 minutes on each side; remove from pan and reserve.
- Add all remaining ingredients to skillet, stir to blend, bring a boil. Return chops to skillet, cover and reduce heat to a simmer. Cook for 5 to 6 minutes, until internal temperature on a thermometer reads 160°F (70°C).
Makes 6 servings.
