The Best of Gourmet: Featuring the Flavors of Spain
from the Editors of Gourmet, 1999, The Condé Nast Publications,
1 medium shallot
4 dried figs (preferably Calimyrna
Two 1 1/2-inch-thick boneless pork loin chops (about 3/4 pound)

1 teaspoon grated peeled fresh gingerroot
1/3 cup water
2 tablespoons dry white wine
1 tablespoon unsalted butter

Pat pork dry and season with salt and pepper. In a skillet heat oil
over moderately high heat until hot but not smoking and sauté pork until browned, about 1
minute on each side. Transfer pork to a plate and in fat remaining in skillet cook shallot
and gingerroot, stirring, until fragrant, about 30 seconds. Add pork, water, wine, zest,
lemon juice, and figs, and simmer, covered, 10 minutes, or until pork is just cooked

until reduced to a sauce-like consistency, about 1 minute. Whisk butter into fig mixture
