Recipe: Curried Fruit Pork Chops

GoSun's community is always making incredible recipes on their solar cookers. Here's one that was sent to the support community that we wanted to share with you. 

This is a recipe for curried fruit pork chops that we made in the GoSun Fusion that turned out amazing so we wanted to share with other users.

The recipe can be halved to make in the GoSun Sport.


1 large sweet onion


4 medium pork chops

1/4 cup flour

1 tsp kosher or sea salt

1 tsp cracked black pepper

1 tsp garlic powder

1 tsp Flavor Mates no-salt seasoning

8 oz fresh sliced mushrooms

~ 3 oz Medjool dates, pitted and chopped

~ 3 oz dried apricots, cut up

~ 3 oz dried cranberries (the ones I used were sweetened but I suspect unsweetened ones would work as well combining with the other fruits to create a nice "sweet-and-sour" flavor)

14.5 oz can of no-salt beef broth

14.5 oz water

1 cup wine (recipe called for burgundy, I chose Chardonnay; when I make it as a stew I think I am going to try a Malbec)

1 Maggi garlic and herb vegetable bouillon pod

2 tsp curry powder (or to taste)


Line GoSun cooking tray with parchment paper (I actually have two small silicone baking mats that I use). Sautee and caramelize sliced onions in butter until soft, about 1/2 hour.

While the onions are cooking, combine flour and dry spices (except curry) in a zip-loc sandwich bag. Coat pork chops one at a time and set aside on a plate or in a bowl until onions have finished cooking. When onions have finished cooking, layer chops over onions. Sprinkle any remaining seasoned flour over the chops, then cover with mushrooms and chopped fruit.

In a bowl mix the beef broth, water, wine, bouillon, and curry powder; whisk to combine. Pour over the chops. Cook until broth is mostly absorbed by fruits and pork chops are cooked through. (Time varies with available sunlight.)

Enjoy! (We did.) I was experimenting and half expecting it to be a complete disaster, but it turned out so good that we are going to make it again as a stew by adding more broth, more wine, and some potatoes
