Pork Chops with Grilled Apple Chutney

Picked up some thick, bone-in chops at Hy-Vee the other day and it was time to grill. Now what to have with them? I had a couple apples and a pear so thought some grilled chutney would be nice! Not sure if this is truly chutney, but I just like saying chutney. This is easy enough to make and will cook along side the chops on the grill. Peel and slice the apple and pears. Toss in a cast iron pan. Mix up the ‘chutney’ sauce – 1/2 cup balsamic vinegar, 2T brown sugar, 2 T melted butter, tsp of ginger, salt and pepper. Mix together in a bowl and pour over apple, pear, onion mixture.Toss to coat well and they are ready for the grill. I like to season the chops with olive oil, salt and pepper. Simple seasoning to bring out the flavor of the pork. Let them sit out for 20-30 minutes before grilling.Grill time is about 25 minutes. The pork temp should be 145 degrees and the apples tender. Pull off the grill and let rest 10 minutes. Slice and serve. The apple/pear chutney turned out wonderful. The balsamic vinegar along with the ginger was very tasty. Cheers!
