Pork Chops with Tomato Chutney

For a quick appetizer, spread softened goat cheese or cream cheese on crackers, and spoon chutney on top. It can also be used as a filling for omelets or as a topping for baked potatoes.

Pork Chops with Tomato Chutney

Source: Everyday Food, June 2004


  • 3 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 medium onion, chopped (about 1 cup)
  • 1 teaspoon mustard seeds
  • 1 can (14.5 ounces) whole tomatoes, with juice
  • 1/4 cup cider vinegar
  • 1/4 cup golden raisins
  • 4 teaspoons dark-brown sugar
  • Coarse salt and ground pepper
  • 4 pork loin chops, (each 1/2 inch thick and 6 to 8 ounces)


  1. Make chutney: Heat 1 tablespoon oil in a small skillet over medium heat. Add onion and mustard seeds; cook, stirring occasionally, until onion is golden, about 8 minutes.

  2. Add tomatoes, breaking them up with a spoon. Stir in vinegar, raisins, sugar, and 1/4 cup water; season with salt and pepper. (Yellow raisins, which are plumper and sweeter than dark ones, are often used to make chutneys.) Bring to a boil, and reduce heat; simmer, stirring occasionally, until mixture has thickened, about 15 minutes. Set chutney aside.

  3. Meanwhile, generously season both sides of pork chops with salt and pepper. In a large skillet, heat remaining 2 tablespoons oil over medium-high heat. Cook pork (in two batches, if necessary) until browned and cooked through, 3 to 4 minutes per side. Serve with chutney.

    This chutney is soooo tasty and versatile. I was putting it on hot dogs by week's end and loving it! I think I did use a little less brown sugar than what was called for, so maybe the previous comment is right about it being too sweet.

    This was good. The only thing I would tweak is the chutney. It came out a little sweet for my tastes. I might scale down some of the sugar.

    If pork's not your thing this chutney is also good with chicken or even spread on a cracker along with cream cheese or goat cheese.
