Pork chops go on sale frequently here, so I'm constantly trying to find something new to do with them. One of my favorite ways to prepare them is simple: saute them & serve with a chutney. We've tried a mango chutney before & the boys loved it but mangoes are pretty expensive, especially when they are out of season. The first apple chutney recipe I found on MarthaStewart.com used cayenne pepper, which I'm out of, so I kept hunting. I finally found one from Relish that used allspice instead.
My favorite part: This is a 30 minute pork chops recipe, so I don't have to worry about spending hours in the kitchen!
