"This stylish meal sounds like it is quite a bit of work, but it comes together quickly, and the chutney can be made ahead and refrigerated overnight. Serve with a cucumber salad and crusty bread."

Directions

{{model.addEditText}} Print
  1. In lightly oiled skillet, saute bell pepper, garlic, onion and jalapeno for 2 minutes, stirring, until vegetables are wilted. Stir in peaches, brown sugar and vinegar. Simmer briefly, until sugar dissolves. Remove from heat and let stand at room temperature, up to 2 hours, until serving.
  2. In large saucepan, bring water, cinnamon, 1/2 teaspoon salt and butter to a boil; stir in the couscous, cover and let rest for 10 minutes.
  3. Meanwhile, cut pork into medallions about 3/4-inch thick. In small bowl stir together remaining 1/2 teaspoon salt, pepper, cumin and chili powder; rub this mixture over all surfaces of medallions. Broil medallions 4-5 inches from heat for 4 minutes; turn and broil 4 minutes more. Serve medallions with couscous and chutney.

Very nice - spicy! (Too spicy for our kids). I left out the jalepeno in the chutney, and actually used bulgur instead of couscous, which was still very good. The chutney was lovely!

Pork was way more seasoned than it needed to be, but that's easy to fix. Overall just wasn't a fan of the couscous.

Delicious. Don't forget to de-seed the jalapeno. The jalapeno seeds is where all the heat comes from. I read the reviews and my husband and I love spice, so I was really exited about the 'revi...

Waaaaaaaaaay too spicy even for a guy who likes some spice. Back off on the spice for the pork and less spice on the chutney. The couscous was boring (and I used some leftover chicken stock to a...

One of my favorites. I have made it with tenderloin and thinner cut boneless pork chops. I make the chutney the day ahead to allow the flavors to mingle. Otherwise very quick and only the nam...
