“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.” - by Budark
Original recipe yields 4 servings
- 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.
- 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).

"This was a great base recipe, but as is, I don't think it makes enough sauce. I added about 1 up of pineapple juice, then later another 1/2 cup with some corn starch mixed in to thicken it. Other than..." See more that the only other change I made was to sub nutmeg for the cloves, because I didn't have any. I'll definitely make this again! Next time I'll try to get a pic!"
"It was very interesting! Some bites were super delicious, some were quite tart from the skins. I used 2 garlic cloves, and about 2 1/2 tsp. of fresh grated ginger. I substituted nutmeg in for the clov..." See morees, because it was what I had. We thought it was good, but missing something, and decided that it needed black pepper. I served the pork chop on top of a pile of quinoa, and spooned the sauce over it all. I would definitely try this again, but next time I would try something to combat/balance a bit of the tartness. Fun to try and yummy!"
"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 leftove..." See morer pork and chicken to pan to heat. Already cooked rice noodles so added at end to heat. Served with cabbage and greens fried in 1 t. bacon grease and sundried tomatoes. So much better than boring soy sauce by itself on noodles."
