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.
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
1/2 teaspoon red curry paste
1 cup fat-free, less-sodium chicken broth
2 tablespoons chopped dried apricots
1 teaspoon honey
1 garlic clove, minced
1 1/2 cups hot cooked basmati rice
2 tablespoons thinly sliced green onions
How to Make It
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. Add pork mixture, broth, apricots, honey, and garlic; bring to a boil. Cover, reduce heat, and simmer 10 minutes or until pork is done. Remove pork from pan. Increase heat to medium-high. Add rice; cook 2 minutes or until thoroughly heated, stirring frequently. Serve rice mixture with pork, and top each serving with 1 tablespoon green onions.
