Ingredients

  • 1

    lb. plums, red fleshed or golden fleshed are lovely

  • 4

    servings of bone-in pork chops or boneless pork sirloin

  • 5

    tbsp. honey

  • 1

    tsp. Chinese five spice powder

  • 1

    tsp. ground ginger

  • 1

    medium fresh red hot chile (I used Anaheim chile), seeded and finely chopped

  • 4

    cloves garlic, crushed

  • Juice of 1/2 orange (I used 1/2 c. orange juice)

  • 1

    tsp. white wine vinegar

  • Kosher salt and black pepper

Directions

Preheat the oven to 375°F. and get out an oven-proof shallow baking dish. Halve and pit the plums, slicing them into quarters or sixths. Lay the pork chops in the baking pan, arrange the plums around them. Whisk together the honey, five spice powder, ginger, chile, garlic, orange juice, vinegar, salt and pepper. Pour the sauce over the pork and plums. Pop in the pre-heated oven and roast for 45 minutes. Serve hot from the oven. Note: An alternate method is to heat a grill pan until it is VERY hot. Spray with a bit of oven spray. Rub the meat with a bit of olive oil and salt and black pepper and sear for about three to four minutes on each side. When you turn the pork over after searing the first side, add the plums so that they begin to soften. When the second side of the pork is browned and crisp (another three to four minutes), carefully add the whisked sauce, let it bubble up for a couple minutes, then carefully transfer the pan to the oven and finish the dish by roasting for 10-15 minutes or until the pork is light pink and moist in the middle. Serve hot from the oven.
