Pork chops are a great option for dinner because they are reasonably priced and they give you a different option from having chicken or beef. Pork is known as the “other white meat” for a reason, after all.

Here is a great recipe for Pork Chops with Pear Chutney that I think you and your family will love! The chutney is simple to make right in the microwave and then the pork chops are done on your stove top.  It’s a simple recipe, but it will seem like you spent all day on it. Those types of meals are always the most rewarding if you ask me.

You are really going to love the taste, it’s such a perfect combination. The pork chops come out so moist and the chutney has such a wonderful flavor, not to mention that glorious, subtle crunch of the pear. Give it a try and let me know what you think!

Here’s what you need:

1 shallot, diced
3 tablespoons cider vinegar
2 tablespoons light brown sugar
1 tablespoon unsalted butter
1 1 -inch piece peeled fresh ginger, cut into coins
