Ingredients

Grilled Pork Chops

  • 4 1" Thick Pork Chops Bone-In
  • 1/2 Tsp Salt
  • 1/4 Tsp Pepper

Pineapple Salsa

  • 1 Cup Mango Diced
  • 1 Red Bell Pepper Diced
  • 1 Small Jalapeno Diced
  • 1/2 Small Red Onion Diced
  • 1 Tbsp Lime Juice
  • 1 Tbsp Fresh Basil Chiffonade
  • 1/4 Tsp Salt
  • 1/8 Tsp Cayenne Pepper

Instructions

  1. Clean grill and turn to high to pre-heat to at least 500 degrees.

  2. Prepare pork chops by patting them dry with a paper towel and sprinkling with salt and pepper on both sides. Set aside to come to room temperature while other ingredients are prepared.

  3. Dice all ingredients for salsa into roughly even-sized pieces. Toss all ingredients for the salsa together and set aside. Cayenne pepper can be omitted if you don't want any heat.

  4. Carefully place each pork chop down on the preheated grill. Turn down heat to medium-high and close the lid. Try to open the grill as few times as possible so it does not lose its heat.

  5. Cook each pork chop for about 7 minutes and turn over. Be sure that none of the pork chops are touching each other at any point during the process. Remove the chops from the grill after an additional 7 minutes or when the internal temperature reaches 145 degrees.

  6. Allow pork chops to rest for 5 minutes. Then top with 1/4 cup of mango salsa and serve warm!
