Apple Chutney:

  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 5 cups (1/4-inch) cubed peeled apple (about 3 apples)
  • 2 teaspoons minced peeled fresh ginger
  • 3 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 3 tablespoons cider vinegar
  • 1/4 teaspoon dry mustard
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground allspice or cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt


  • 3/4 teaspoon ground chili powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground coriander
  • 1/4 teaspoon onion powder
  • 4 (4-ounce) boneless center-cut pork loin chops
  • Salt and Pepper, to taste
  • Cooking spray

To prepare chutney, melt butter in a nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add apple; sauté 4 minutes or until lightly browned. Add ginger; sauté another 1-2 minutes.

Add the next 5 ingredients (through salt); bring to a boil. Reduce heat, and simmer 8 minutes or until apples are tender; stir occasionally.

To prepare pork, while chutney simmers, heat a grill pan over medium-high heat.

Combine chili powder and next 3 ingredients (through onion powder) with salt and pepper; sprinkle over pork. Coat grill pan with cooking spray. Add pork to pan; cook 4 minutes on each side or until done. Serve with chutney.
