  • 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.

  • 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 (145ºF). 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.

Fresh 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.
