Pan Seared Pork Chops with a Sweet Plum Reduction
Cook time
Total time
Serves: 2
  • 2 pork chops, trimmed
  • 1 teaspoon Chinese five spice
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ½ teaspoon pepper
  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • ½ cup white wine
  • 3 plums, cubed (go ahead and leave the skins on, as I did)
  • Chinese Five Spice
  • juice of ½ an orange
  1. Rub the pork chops with Chinese five spice, salt, and pepper. Heat the butter in a large pan over medium-high heat. Add in the pork chops, turn the heat to high, and cook for 4-5 minutes on each side, until cooked through. Remove to a separate plate and cover with foil to keep warm.
  2. Turn the heat back down to medium. Deglaze the pan with the white wine, scraping up any browned bits with a spatula or wooden spoon. Add in the orange juice, then add in the plums. Cook over medium heat until the plums have softened, about 5-8 minutes.
  3. Add the pork chops back to the pan to warm up and coat with the sauce in the pan. Serve topped with plenty of plums and sauce and enjoy! Serves 2.
