2 jars (23-1/2 ounces each) mixed tropical fruit, drained and chopped
3/4 cup thawed limeade concentrate
1/4 cup sweet chili sauce
1 garlic clove, minced
1 teaspoon minced fresh gingerroot
4 bone-in pork loin chops (3/4 inch thick and 5 ounces each)
1 green onion, finely chopped
2 tablespoons minced fresh cilantro
2 tablespoons minced fresh mint
2 tablespoons slivered almonds, toasted
2 tablespoons finely chopped crystallized ginger, optional
1/2 teaspoon grated lime zest
1In a 3-qt. slow cooker, combine the first five ingredients. Add pork, arranging chops to sit snugly in fruit mixture. Cook, covered, on low 3-4 hours or until meat is tender (a thermometer inserted in pork should read at least 145°).
2In a small bowl, mix remaining ingredients. To serve, remove pork chops from slow cooker. Using a slotted spoon, serve fruit over pork. Sprinkle with herb mixture.
Note: To toast nuts, place in a dry nonstick skillet and heat over low heat until lightly browned, stirring occasionally.
