Mango and Paprika Pork Chops

The hot paprika adds a little kick to this dish, but feel free to substitute sweet paprika for a milder version.

  • Yield: Serves 4
  • Total: 30 Minutes


  • 4 boneless pork chops (about 1 1/2 lbs.)
  • 2 to 3 tsp. hot Hungarian paprika
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt, divided

  • 1/2 red onion, cut into thin wedges
