Serves: 4
 
Ingredients
  • 1 ½ tsp. ground cumin
  • ¾ tsp. ground ginger
  • ½ tsp. sea salt
  • ¼ tsp. ground allspice
  • ⅛ tsp. ground cayenne pepper (or omit if serving small children)
  • 4 (6-oz.) bone-in center-cut pork chops (about ½-in.-thick)
  • Cooking fat of choice, such as olive oil, coconut oil, butter, or lard
  • 1 large ripe mango, peeled and diced (for tips on dicing a mango, see this video here)
  • 1 c. organic grape or cherry tomatoes, quartered
  • ½ c. cilantro leaves, coarsely chopped (about 3 Tbsp. chopped)
  • 1 Tbsp. fresh lemon juice (or substitute red wine vinegar)
  • 2 tsp. good-quality extra-virgin olive oil
  • Fresh ground sea salt and pepper, for garnish
Instructions
  1. Combine cumin, ginger, sea salt, allspice, and cayenne pepper in a small bowl. Sprinkle pork chops all over with spice mixture.
  2. Combine mango, tomatoes, cilantro, lemon juice, and olive oil in a medium bowl; toss gently.
  3. Heat a grill or a grill pan over medium-high heat and grease with cooking fat of choice. Add pork; grill 3 minutes on each side (or longer for thicker pork chops) or until an instant-read thermometer registers 145° and pork is slightly pink in the middle.
  4. Serve salsa with pork. Garnish with fresh ground salt and pepper, if desired.
