How to make it

  • Chop up fruit in a bowl. I used a knife because my potato masher is M.I.A., which annoys me greatly. Add only a bit of the juice, the spices, honey, vanilla and lime juice, mixing well.
  • Mix up the additional spices with the honey and rub on the meat. If you're sensitive to a lot of spice, you can skip the rub, but I just happen to love taste.
  • Heat up oil in Frypan over medium heat. I've recently discovered Grapeseed Oil, which is expensive as a gold-plated duck egg, but it burns clean and tastes great and so far hasn't aggravated my ulcers. So far.
  • Let the pan get really hot (be careful, it spits!) and sear the rub into the meat.
  • When it browns around the sides, transfer it to a baking dish with the raw chutney on top. Pour in about 1/3 cup of the papaya/passion juice to partially submurge the chops and bake at 375F for about 20 minutes, depending on how thick the chops are. (20 minutes for thin, 40 for thick)
  • If you're frying, put the chutney right in the pan with it and keep it on a low-medium flame, turning occasionally for about 20-30 minutes until done.
  • Side Serving suggestion: Couscous or sweet rice, like Ruby or Jasmine.
Where's my damn masher at??   Close
A few drops of human blood is the secret ingredient. No, I'm kidding. I just accidentally cut myself. That seems to happen to me a lot. /=(   Close
Spiced Chutney. Wow. I mean, seriously, I wasn't even sure what chutney was until some bizzare, unseen force guided me through making it.   Close
Grinding the rub.   Close
Just one fried in the pan. I thought frying it would make the meat tough, but it didn't. It helped sear the flavors in and it made the fruit taste more tart.   Close
The rest was baked.   Close
They looked so good, and smelled even better.   Close
Baking made everything so soft and light. The coriander came out more this way too. It was so light, that I found myself eating faster. Not sure which way I liked it more, but they were both scrumpcious.   Close

    Okay, Mal, I made this, tonight, with the small, tender, venison tenderloin. Here are the small changes I made, other than the type of meat. :) I added a dash of red pepper flakes and dry mustard to both the marinade and the fruit, I left some of the fruit fairly large chunks, and I did it all in my cast iron, rather than the baking method. It was SOO good! :) I try to find different recipes, ones that are a lil off of our "usual", and this qualified. We loved it. I served it with wild rice and simple sauteed spinach, also with red pepper flakes. I am sharing two pics, once with the rice, and one without. Thank you so much for the recipe, and for "letting" me use the venison! :) ***oh, and I opted to leave the human blood out of mine...maybe next time ;)***

    Just saved this one to try VERY soon...but, am using venison tenderloin. Hope you don't mind, but this sounds perfect for it! :) And, I ALWAYS report back when I try a recipe, and I take a photo... but you don't look like you need any more photos, and I don't wanna add it if it will interfere with your lovely walk through to have mine at the end... if you get a minute, drop me a message and lemme know! :) Thanks for the idea, here. I'm looking forward to it.
