Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Trim fat from pork chops; set aside. In a small bowl, combine the fruit spread, barbecue sauce, and lemon peel; set aside.

  • In a small bowl combine black pepper, salt, and allspice. Sprinkle evenly over both sides of pork chops. Coat a large nonstick skillet with cooking spray and place over medium high heat until hot. Cook the pork 3 to 4 minutes on each side or until just beginning to brown. (Note: it will still be slightly pink in center). Remove the pork and set aside on separate plate.

  • Add the fruit spread mixture to the same skillet. Cook and stir until heated through. Add the pork chops and cook 1 to 2 minutes or until pork chops are glazed, turning occasionally. Place on serving platter and spoon any remaining glaze in pan over all.


Tips: For a sweeter, thinner glaze, use 1/3 cup fruit spread.
