Mango pork loin

Yield: 8 Servings

Measure Ingredient
4 tablespoons Butter
1 tablespoon Curry powder
4 cups Fresh pineapple; diced
1 cup Chicken broth
3½ pounds Boneless Pork loin
⅔ cup Mango chutney
Salt & Pepper (to taste)

Mango garnish: 2 fresh mangoes peeled and diced (or sliced) and tossed with 1 Tbl. minced fresh ginger and 1 Tbl. minced cilantro. Optional: additional mango chutney.

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Place butter and curry powder in skillet.

Cook over medium heat for 3 minutes, stirring frequently. Add pineapple and stir to coat. Add pineapple juice and broth and bring to a boil on high heat. Boil 8 minutes.

Meanwhile, trim pork of excess fat, leaving a thin layer on top of the meat. Place fat-side up, in a shallow roasting pan. Using a slotted spoon, scoop up pineapple and place around the meat. Pour ⅓ cup of juice-broth mixture over top of meat. Place in the middle of a preheated 350¡ oven. Roast for 1 hour, uncovered.

Meanwhile, reduce juice-broth mixture by boiling on high heat for about 8 to 10 minutes. You want to reduce it by half in volume. As the pork roasts, if pan look dry, spoon a little of this reduced juice-broth mixture over the roast to baste it. If preparing rice, reserve 1 cup of juice-broth mixture; set aside. Remove roast from oven and season with a little salt and pepper. Spread chutney over the top of the roast, covering sides and ends. Return to oven and roast, uncovered, an additional 30 minutes (roast should have an internal temperature of 150¡ to 160¡). Add more juice-broth mixture to pan if it looks dry.

Allow to rest for 10 minutes before slicing. Arrange pork slices on a platter, overlapping each slice to form a pattern. Place mango garnish around the pork. Serve immediately.
