Description

An ever-so-easy way to add a little zip to pork chops cooked in a cast iron skillet. Serve over buttered rice for a quick and easy dinner.

Ingredients
  • 1 (8 ounce) can tomato paste
  • 1 cup pineapple juice
  • ½ cup raisins
  • 2 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 2 tablespoons cornstarch
  • 1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar
  • ½ tablespoon ground ginger
  • ½ teaspoon red pepper flakes
  • 1 pinch seasoned salt, or to taste
  • 2 bone-in pork chops
  • 2 tablespoons salted butter
Directions
  1. 1. Combine tomato paste, pineapple juice, raisins, brown sugar, cornstarch, vinegar, ginger, red pepper flakes, and seasoned salt in a medium bowl and set aside.
  2. 2. Rinse pork chops and pat dry. Melt butter in a cast iron skillet over medium-high heat. Add chops and brown on both sides, 5 to 8 minutes total. Do not drain the skillet.
  3. 3. Pour in the tomato paste mixture, reduce heat, and let simmer until sauce thickens to a gravy consistency and pork is no longer pink in the center, about 20 minutes. An instant-read thermometer inserted into the center of each chop should read 145 degrees F (63 degrees C).
