porkmangochutneyPowerful.  That is probably the best word I could use to describe the taste in this dish.  The pork loins tenderness paired with the bold chutney is soothing and pleasing to the palate.  Perhaps not the first dish to come to mind in the fall, don’t let that stop you from enjoying this dish all year-long.

We’ve been a little busy around here with my son just finishing up outdoor soccer, as well as myself preparing for the upcoming indoor soccer season.  I decided this was probably going to be our best day for practice so we worked hard for about an hour before we decided we were too hungry to be exerting this much energy.

I had some mangos in the fridge that were just about perfect for the taking and I had to use them for something.  Stomachs rumbling this probably wasn’t the best dish to go for since it takes a few hours.  Roasting this is rewarding and you can always sneak a few snacks in during the cooking process.

We went with a 3.5lb pork loin very nice cut.  We kept it simple with 2 sweet onions cut in thicker chunks.  I did grind up some ginger and used about 1tsp.  You can of course use the pre-ground ginger.  We also minced 3 large garlic cloves for a nice punch.  Garlic is always to taste though so choose accordingly.  I threw in a whole jar of mango chutney (12oz).  Also I cut up the 2 mangos I had into small 1/2″ chunks and applied the chutney and the mango pieces as a sort of thick glaze atop the loin with the onions resting peacefully at the bottom.

Flavor sensation was the final result with this dish.  This right here is proof that it doesn’t have to be complicated to be a knock out even when it’s just an ordinary night and you can always rely on the possibilities of food.  Normal days are many, and you would be surprised how transforming a night can be with a new dish!
