Ginger-Curry Pork and Rice

If you don't have dried apricots on hand, you can substitute golden raisins instead. Fresh ginger livens this dish and gives it a mild, peppery heat.

Cooking Light JUNE 2004

  • Yield: 2 servings (serving size: 1 pork chop and 1 cup rice mixture)

Ingredients

  • 2 (4-ounce) boneless, center-cut loin pork chops
  • 1/8 teaspoon black pepper
  • Dash of salt
  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil, divided
  • 1/2 teaspoon grated lime rind
  • 1 tablespoon fresh lime juice
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons grated peeled fresh ginger
  • 1/2 cup chopped onion

  • 1 teaspoon honey
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • 1 1/2 cups hot cooked basmati rice
  • 2 tablespoons thinly sliced green onions

Preparation

Sprinkle pork with pepper and salt. Heat 2 teaspoons oil in a medium nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add pork; cook 2 1/2 minutes on each side or until browned. Remove pork from pan. Combine rind, juice, and ginger in a shallow dish; add pork, turning to coat.

Heat remaining 1 teaspoon oil in pan over medium heat. Add onion and curry paste; cook 2 minutes or until onion is tender, stirring frequently.
