Recipe Reprinted with Permission from the Manitoba Pork Council Web Site.
4 boneless pork loin steaks/chops, cut 3/4" thick
1/2 cup pureed melon (cantaloupe or honeydew)
2 tablespoons honey
1/4 cup lime juice
2 tablespoons margarine
1/8 teaspoon curry powder
4 ounces cream cheese
2-4 tablespoons milk
4 slices melon, (cantaloupe or honeydew) peeled and cut 1/2" thick
In small saucepan, combine pureed melon, honey, lime juice, margarine and curry powder. Stir over medium heat until margarine is melted. Remove from heat. Brush pork with sauce. Beat together cream cheese, milk and some of the sauce until smooth and of desired consistency. In a covered barbecue, over indirect heat, grill chops, basting often with sauce and turning once, about 15-20 minutes. Transfer to serving platter and keep warm. Brush melon slices with remaining sauce and cook directly over heat, about 2 minutes on each side. To serve, place a dollop of cream cheese mixture on each chop and dust lightly with nutmeg. Serve grilled melon as a garnish.
Makes 4 servings.
