Equipment

  • Grill

Ingredients

  • 4 boneless pork loin chops ½ inch thick
  • 2 tablespoon Mazola® Corn Oil divided
  • 1 teaspoon chili powder
  • 1 teaspoon brown sugar
  • ½ teaspoon garlic powder
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ½ teaspoon ground cumin
  • ½ teaspoon dried cilantro
  • 2 tablespoons lime juice divided
  • 2 ripe peaches peeled and halved
  • 2 ripe mangos peeled and halved
  • 1 thick 1-inch slice of red onion
  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh cilantro

Instructions

  • Heat gas grill on high heat.
  • Pour one tablespoon of Mazola® Corn Oil on top of the pork chops. Massage on to both sides of the pork.
  • Mix together the chili powder, brown sugar, garlic, and salt. Rub chili powder on both sides of each pork chop. Set to the side.
  • Peel the peaches and mango, and slice in half. Toss the fruit in the remaining 1 tablespoon of Mazola® Corn Oil.
  • Clean the grill and reduce the heat to medium-low.
  • Place pork chops, peaches, mango, and red onion on the grill. Cover grill; cook 6 to 9 minutes, turning once, until pork is no longer pink in center and internal temperature reads at least 145 degrees Fahrenheit. Remove the pork from the grill, set on a plate and tent with foil.
  • Remove the fruit and onion from the grill. Place in a food processor with 1 tablespoon fresh cilantro, and 1 tablespoon lime juice. Pulse until fruit is in coarse bite-size pieces (about 10-15 seconds). Serve pork chops topped with mango peach salsa, or serve salsa on the side.

Notes

  • Grill Tray - If your slices of fruit are too thin and you are worried about it falling through the grill grates you can place all the fruit on a grill grate.
  • Peaches - If you can't find fresh peaches you can use fresh nectarines.
  • Frozen Fruit - If peaches and mangoes are not in season you can thaw 1 cup of each peaches and mangoes. Place the thawed fruit in a grill tray and cook according to directions.
  • Peeling Soft Fruit - I have found that a serrated peeler is best when peeling soft fruit like peaches.
  • Manually Chop - You can manually chop your fruit instead of using a food processor. Just make sure you add on an additional 5 minutes to your preparation time.
  • Baked pork chops with peach salsa - Yes, you can totally bake the pork chops instead of grill them. Simply season them and bake them in the oven at 400 degrees Fahrenheit for 15 to 20 minutes. Or until the internal temperature of the pork chop reaches 145 degrees Fahrenheit. No need to grill the fruit. Simply peel, blend in food processor, and serve.
