Grilled Pork Chops with Fresh Nectarine Salsa Recipe

Description

A summertime salsa livens up spicy, grilled pork chops with sweet-tangy flavors from nectarines and tomatoes sparked by onions, cilantro, chile pepper flakes, and lime juice.

Ingredients

  • 2 eaches nectarines, pitted and diced
  • 1 ripe tomato, seeded and diced
  • ¼ cup diced onion
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh cilantro
  • 2 tablespoons fresh lime juice
  • ¼ teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes, or to taste
  • salt to taste
  • 1 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1 teaspoon chili powder
  • salt and ground black pepper to taste
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 8 (4 ounce) boneless pork loin chops

Instructions

  1. Preheat an outdoor grill for medium-high heat. Lightly oil grate, and set 4 inches from the heat.
  2. To make the salsa, place the nectarines, tomato, onion, cilantro, lime juice, and red pepper flakes in a bowl; toss to blend. Season to taste with salt. Cover, and refrigerate 30 minutes to blend flavors.
  3. Stir the cumin, chili powder, salt, and pepper together in a small bowl. Place the olive oil in a small bowl. Brush the pork chops with oil, and season both sides evenly with the cumin mixture.
  4. Place pork loin chops on the preheated grill. Cook until lightly browned and juices run clear, about 4 minutes on each side. Place pork chops on serving plates, and top with a generous spoonful of salsa.
