Pork with Pineapple Mango Dipping Sauce

Deneece Gursky


A friend of mine gave me some fresh ripe mangoes and I decided I was going to make mango salsa for my potluck party this weekend with some but had no idea what i wanted to do with the rest. Tonight my daughter requested pork for dinner and this is what i came up with. She was hesitant to taste it but did so as not to hurt my feelings. Well she was in love her words "Mama this is amazing, i really didnt think i was going to like it. When you were making it I thought my mamas crazy mango and pork? yuk! But its sooo amazing. And the lime juice you added i think made it just tart enough. It really compliments the pork nicely"

2 boneless pork chops
garlic powder
goya sazon (two packets)
1 medium onion sliced thin
1 medium sized ripe mango
2 to 3tablespoons of pineapple juice
2 good squirts of lime juice

Directions Step-By-Step

Trim excess fat from pork chops
Season both sides of chops with garlic powder, pepper and one packet of goya sazon.
Heat oil in skillet until hot. Add Chops and sear on both sides.
Remove chops from stove. Season onions with same seasoning (only use 1/4 packet of sazon) Cook in small skillet with olive oil until tender but still crisp.
Cut chops into cubes, reseason and return to skillet. Continue cooking on medium heat until they are cooked through and tender.
Add onions to pork and stir fry for a few minutes more.
Remove from stove and keep warm.
Meanwhile cut mango in chunks and put in blender. Pulse till they are crushed. Add pineapple juice and pulse several times. Add two good squirts of lime juice and pulse again. Taste. (should have a sweet yet tart flavor) Add another squirt of lime juice if needed. Pour into small bowl to use for dipping pork in.
I served mine up with some simple homemade stuffing (pepperidge farms italian stuffing cubes, chicken broth, onions, salt pepper and garlic powder) and mixed veggies with a butter and garlic sauce.
