1 mango, peeled and pitted
2 Tablespoons olive oil
1 large cloves garlic, minced
1 jalapeno pepper, seeded and minced
1/4 cup fresh basil, finely chopped
3/4 cup chicken broth
1 Tablespoon soy sauce
2 Tablespoons GOLDEN BLOSSOM HONEY
salt and pepper to taste
4 (6 to 8 ounce) 1 inch thick center cut pork chops
How Honey Is Created
Honey is created when bees mix plant nectar, a sweet substance secreted by flowers, with their own bee enzymes.
In a medium sized pan, heat one tablespoon oil over medium heat. Add garlic, jalapeno, and basil. Saute about one minute, until basil begins to wilt. Add chicken broth, soy sauce and honey. Stir occasionally and bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer for 3 minutes. Slowly add mango puree, whisking thoroughly. Simmer gently and let sauce thicken, about 5 minutes. Salt and pepper to taste.
Preheat broiler. Brush pork with remaining tablespoon of oil and season with salt and pepper. Broil about 5 minutes each side, until cooked through. Warm sauce and serve over pork chops.
