"What better way to serve pork than with a sweet and tangy plum sauce! The combination of spices turns this ordinary pork dish into a family favorite! Serve with rice and sprinkle with cilantro."

  1. Heat the vegetable oil in a skillet over medium-high heat. Season pork chops with salt and pepper; cook in the hot oil until browned, about 2 minutes per side. Remove pork chops to a plate.
  2. Reduce heat to medium; cook and stir the garlic in the skillet just until fragrant, 10 to 20 seconds. Pour in the soy sauce, red wine vinegar, brown sugar, ginger, and cloves; bring to a boil. Stir the mixture until the brown sugar dissolves; add the plums. Cover, reduce heat, and simmer the mixture until the sauce has thickened and the plums are very soft, about 45 minutes. Mash the plums with a potato masher to an applesauce-like texture. Place the pork chops back into the pan and cook in the sauce until no longer pink in the middle, 10 to 15 minutes. A meat thermometer inserted into the middle of a chop should read 145 degrees (63 degrees C).

Love to use fruit to flavor meat. Nice to make rather than a sugary jarful. Used chicken broth, sprayed with Brach's Amino Acids, no vinegar or brown sugar, 2 whole cloves vs. ground. Added l...

I cut this recipe down to 2 chops. I used low sodium soy sauce and 3 plums. My plums were really ripe (soft) and the flesh just squeezed out of the skins, I didn't put the skins in the sauce. ...

I did not like it - the soy sauce was too overpowering. I made this for 1 person and cooked the sauce only about 10 minutes. The plums were soft by that point and the sauce was thickened.
