Directions

1. For mango relish, in a medium bowl stir together mango, pineapple, orange segments, the 1/4 cup orange juice, red onion, banana pepper (if desired), orange peel, and cayenne pepper; set aside.

2. Sprinkle pork chops with chili powder, salt, and pepper. In a large skillet, heat oil over medium-high heat. Add two pork chops. Brown 3 minutes each side. Remove from skillet. Add remaining pork chops to skillet; brown 3 minutes each side. Add first two pork chops back to the skillet.

3. In a small bowl whisk together the 1/2 cup orange juice and honey; add to the skillet. Add the 1/2 cup of water. Reduce heat to low. Simmer, covered, for 5 minutes or until pork chops are done (145 degrees F). Spoon mango relish over pork. Cover; simmer 1 minute more. Remove pork chops and relish from pan; cover to keep warm. Return pan to high heat. Simmer juices, uncovered, 5 minutes or until reduced by half. Serve pork chops with mango relish. Drizzle with pan juices and sprinkle with fresh cilantro.

From the Test KitchenFresh or Thawed Chops
  • To use chops that are not frozen, reduce browning time to 1 1/2 minutes per side. Add liquid and chops to skillet. Bring to a simmer; immediately add mango relish. Simmer just 1 minute. Proceed as above.
