Paleo Chai Spiced Fruit Pork Chops

5 from 4 reviews


  • 4 pork chops
  • 1 cup raisins
  • 1 cup dried figs, chopped
  • 1 cup pistachios, shelled (obv)
  • 2 tablespoons honey
  • 2 chai tea bags
  • 3/4 cup water
  • 1 tablespoon salt
  • 1 tablespoon cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder


First let’s get your chai fruit compote ready:

  1. In a small saucepan, add your water, 1 chai tea bag (spices still in bag), and honey under medium heat. Let that start to caramelize.
  2. Once the mixture is beginning to thicken just a bit, add your dried fruit.
  3. When the mixture has thickened, add 1/2 chai tea bag (the spices from the bag) to the fruit compote as well as the pistachios. Mix well, remove from heat.

Now make those pork chops:

  1. Season pork chops with salt, cinnamon, garlic powder, and the leftover 1/2 chai tea bag spices on both sides of the chops.
  2. Add a bit of fat (bacon, coconut oil, olive oil) to a large skill over medium-high heat. Cook pork chops (time will range depending on thickness) on both side for about 4-5 minutes per side.
  3. Top cooked pork chops with chai fruit compote. It should still be warm. I don’t know if you know this, but sugar gets REALLY hot. My mouth is just now healing.
  4. Consume.
