Cinnamon-Spiced Pork and Plums

Described as "juicy, flavorful, and tender" in an online review, this dish dresses up pork chops with dried plums. Serve with couscous.

Prep Time

    •    Cook time: 5 minutes
    •    Yield: Serves 4


    •    1/4 tsp salt
    •    1 tsp butter
    •    1 tsp olive oil
    •    1/4 tsp ground cloves
    •    1/3 cup dry white wine
    •    1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
    •    2 tbsps chopped fresh parsley
    •    1/4 cup finely chopped shallots
    •    1/4 tsp coarsely ground black pepper
    •    1/3 cup fat-free, less-sodium chicken broth
    •    1 cup pitted dried plums, halved (about 4 ounces)
    •    4 (4-ounce) boneless center-cut loin pork chops (about 1/2 inch thick)

Combine first 4 ingredients in a small bowl; sprinkle evenly over pork. Heat 1 teaspoon olive oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add pork, and cook for 2 minutes on each side or until browned. Add shallots and butter; cook 30 seconds or until butter melts, stirring frequently. Add plums, wine, and broth, turning pork to coat. Cover, reduce heat to medium-low, and cook 2 minutes or until pork is done. Sprinkle with parsley.
