Caribbean Pork Chops with Tropical Salsa
- Preheat oven to 425°F. Stir together sugar, thyme, allspice, salt, pepper, coriander, garlic powder, cayenne, nutmeg and cloves; rub all over pork chops. Heat oil in large ovenproof skillet set over medium-high heat; sear pork chops on both sides until golden brown. Transfer to oven.
- Bake for 8 to 10 minutes or until instant-read thermometer registers 145°F when inserted into center of pork chop, away from the bone. Let stand for 5 minutes.
- Meanwhile, in small serving bowl, stir together mango, tomatoes, cilantro, red onion, jalapeño and lime juice; let stand for 10 minutes. Serve with pork chops.
Tip: For a really impressive presentation, look for Frenched pork chops, which means the bones have been trimmed clean for a lovely presentation.
