    1. Preheat an outdoor barbecue for medium-high heat. Lightly oil the grate and set it about 10cm from the direct heat.
    2. To make the salsa, place the nectarines, tomato, onion, coriander, lime juice and dried chilli flakes in a bowl; toss to blend. Season to taste with salt. Cover and refrigerate for 30 minutes to blend flavours.
    3. Stir the cumin, chilli powder, salt and pepper together in a small bowl. Place the olive oil in a small bowl. Brush the pork chops with oil and season both sides evenly with the cumin mixture.
    4. Place pork loin chops on the preheated barbecue. Cook until browned and juices run clear, about 4 minutes on each side. Place pork chops on serving plates and top with a generous spoonful of salsa.

    This was a refreshing summer meal! I would suggest though that if you're going to keep some for leftovers, to not use nectarines that are too ripe.  -  03 Aug 2008  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    Wow! The nectarine salsa is delicious - wouldn't change a thing! I used half the amount of pork and cut into cubes to make kabobs. I added some paprika to the rub and let it marinate about 6 hours. Great meal!  -  17 Jul 2009  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    This was a great and easy way to use pork. I replaced the tomato with an equal amount of canned pineapple tidbits and probably doubled up on the pork rub, but otherwise made the recipe exactly as stated.  -  10 Sep 2007  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
