Grilled Pork Chops With A Pineapple/Mango Chutney

Grilled Pork Chops with Pineapple Mango Chutney


     So I obtained these awesome large bone in pork chops the other day.  I haven't seen a pork chop this big ever.  I thought to myself, "What would go good with these hunks of deliciousness?"  So I thought, why not create a fusion of sorts of Asian/Hawaiian tastes into succulent chutney over the grilled pork. 

     Pork happens to be one of my favorites of the meat families.  Whether it is pork loin, chops, and of course bacon and sausage, pork is a great protein option with a lot of flavor. I always prepare them the same way.  Usually a little rosemary or garlic and typically broiled or grilled.  This time I thought I should change it up a bit and add some sort of fresh fruit salsa or chutney.  I've had pork with apples, pears, oranges, etc., but what about adding some flare to the whole idea of a fruit companion.  So here goes.  I took some of the flavors of Asian and Hawaiian and combined them into this delicious chutney compote kind of additive.  Hope you enjoy my Grilled Pork chops with a Pineapple and Mango Chutney.


  • 2 lg bone in Pork Chops
  • 1/3 cup of soy sauce
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1 tbs diced fresh ginger
  • 1/2 cup diced pineapple
  • 1/2 cup diced mango
  • 1/4 cup diced green onion
  • Black pepper

     In a small sauté pan pour in the soy sauce and bring to a slow simmer.  Add in the fresh ginger, brown sugar, pineapple, mango and grilled onion.  Stir together to dissolve the sugar then cover and slowly simmer for about 15 minutes.  Meanwhile sprinkle some fresh black pepper on both sides of the pork chops.  Now on a hot grill over high heat place both chops and leave sit for roughly 5 minutes.  Then turn and grill on other side for another 5 minutes.  You can then switch sides again to get those crisscross grill marks if you like.  Remove from stove and let sit for 5 minutes.  Sever these perfectly cooked pork chops with the pineapple mango chutney drizzled on top. Goes good with a side of rice or your favorite vegetable. Serves 2. Ready in 30-45 minutes depending on the temperature of pork.
