Grilled Pork with Marinated Pineapple Slices

With or without the pineapple, these pork chops are delicious! BHL

Serves: 4

Ingredients:

1 Tbsp freshly ground black pepper

2 tsp lime zest

2 tsp orange zest

1 tsp ground coriander or cumin

1 tsp ground cinnamon

½ tsp salt

¼ cup Flying OlivePersian Lime Extra Virgin Olive Oil

1 recipe of Grilled Mango Pineapple Slices (follow link)

1 lb boneless sirloin pork chops (about four thin chops)

A few sprigs of fresh cilantro or basil for garnish

Directions:

Follow the recipe for Grilled Mango Pineapple Slices. When pineapple has marinated for at least 30 minute, start preparing the rub.

Combine the first 5 ingredients.

Turn the grill on to medium-high. While it is heating, rub the spice blend over the meat, rub the Flying Olive Persian Lime EVOO into the entire surface. Let sit a few minutes.

Start grilling the pineapple, following the instructions. About 3 minutes from when it is done, start the chops. Sear quickly on each side, for about a minute, then turn the heat off under the chops and let them cook another 2-3 minutes if thin, longer if thicker. Remove the chops and place under a foil tent for about 5-10 minutes.

Take the pineapple off the grill when it is done. Place under a foil tent as well.

When ready to serve, place a pineapple slice on a plate and place the pork chop on it. Serve and let people remove the rind from the pineapple, taking a bite of the pork and pineapple together. Enjoy!
