Superb! I added fresh garlic to the marinade and used my recipe for the recipe #369334. I, also, sprinkled the pork liberally with a Cajun rub. Using chutney as a condiment was brilliant and found it to be quite nectarous. The tequila was just barely percepitable after being roasted, but truly infused a delicious and distinct flavoring. After having had to buy a bottle of tequila for this dish, I'm supposing I'll have to make good use of it...a round of Marguarita's on me! ;-)
Absolutely DELIGHTFUL and very versitile/forgiving. Grilled the pork - YUM and had to make a couple substitutions for the chutney (rasp jam and white wine vinegar for rasp vineg. and granny smith apples for pears)still tremendously DELISH! We loved the little pepper touch to the sweet chutney. Thanks for the great dish.
I used pineapple chunks and juice 28oz can) instead of oranges. Mixed juice with 1-2 T cornstarch. Used 3 pears. Used 1t ground ginger, and only 1T apple cider vinegar. 1/8 t each nutmeg and cloves instead of allspice. Only 1T lemon juice. Just used ingredients I already had on hand. Everybody said the chutney is a keeper. It’s good hot or cold with pork roast or chops.
