1
tablespoon cumin seed
1
tablespoon cracked black pepper

Pork Chops

4
boneless pork loin or rib chops, about 1 inch thick (about 2 pounds)

  • 2 Cover and grill pork 4 to 6 inches from medium heat 8 to 10 minutes, turning frequently, until pork is no longer pink and meat thermometer inserted in center reads 160°F. Garnish with mango slices.
