Image 1 of 5

Pork chops can sometimes get boring, so Dr. BBQ changes things up a bit using the flavorful tropical mango.

Here's his recipe for this week's One Hour Supper.


  • 6 bone-in pork chops, about ¾ inch thick
  • Blackening spice
  • 2 Tablespoons butter (optional)

Mango Sauce

  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 2 ripe mangos, cut into 1" dice, about 2½ cups
  • 4 scallions, sliced, with some thin sliced green reserved for garnish
  • Juice of 1 lime
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt
  • ¼ teaspoon cayenne (optional)


  • If using the grill, prepare it to cook direct over medium high heat. 
  • Season the pork chops liberally on both sides with the blackening spice and set aside. 
  • In a medium saucepan melt the butter over medium heat. Add the mango and scallion and cook stirring occasionally for 5 minutes until the scallions are soft. Set aside and keep warm. 
  • If you’re using the grill, cook the chops for 3-4 minutes per side until they are well browned and have reached an internal temp of 155 degrees. 
  • If you’re cooking on the stove, heat a large skillet over medium high heat. Melt the butter, then add the pork chops. Cook 3 at a time, for 3-4 minutes until well browned. Flip and cook another 3-4 minutes until they reach an internal temp of 155 degrees. Transfer to a platter to rest. Repeat with the remaining chops. 
  • Add the mango mixture to a blender, then add the lime juice, salt and cayenne. Blend for 30 seconds on high or until smooth. Spoon some of the sauce on a plate, then top with a pork chop. 
  • Garnish with reserved scallion greens.
