  • Makes: 4 servings
  • Serving Size: 4 oz pork and 1 Tbsp sauce
  • Preparation Time: 10 minutes
  • Cooking Time: 10 minutes


1 Tbsp. flour, divided
2 tsp. ground cinnamon
2 tsp. ground ginger
1 tsp. ground cumin
1/4 tsp. cayenne pepper
1/4 tsp. sea salt
1 lb. boneless pork loin chops (about 1/2 to 3/4 inches thick)
1 1/2 Tbsp. olive oil
1/2 cup low-fat, reduced-sodium chicken broth
2 Tbsp. golden raisins
1/4 cup fresh, chopped mint


  1. In a shallow bowl, combine ½ Tbsp of flour with the cinnamon, ginger, cumin, cayenne pepper, and salt. Coat both sides of the pork loin chops with the flour mixture.
  2. Heat the olive oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add the chops and sear on each side for 2 minutes per side.
  3. Mix the remaining flour with the broth in a measuring cup. Add the broth mixture and raisins to the skillet, cover, and simmer for 5 to 6 minutes, until the pork is cooked through and the sauce has thickened. If the sauce is not thick enough, remove the pork and keep it warm while continuing to simmer the sauce for an additional 2 minutes.
  4. To serve, drizzle on the sauce and top with the fresh mint.
