Grilled Peaches and Pork

Grilled Peaches and Pork

Ingredients:

•  4 (4-ounce) boneless center-cut pork loin chops

•  1/4 cup balsamic vinegar, divided

•  2 tablespoons fresh lime juice

•  3 teaspoons chopped fresh thyme

•  1/2 teaspoon salt

•  1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper

•  4 large peaches, peeled, halved, and pitted (about 12 ounces)

•  Cooking spray

•  6 cups trimmed arugula

•  1 teaspoon turbinado or granulated sugar

 

Preparation:

1.  Place each piece of pork between 2 sheets of heavy-duty plastic wrap, and pound each piece to 1/4-inch thickness using a meat mallet or a rolling pin.

2.  Combine 2 tablespoons vinegar, juice, thyme, salt, and pepper in a small bowl. Reserve 1 tablespoon juice mixture. Pour the remaining juice mixture in a large zip-top plastic bag. Add pork; seal and marinate in refrigerator for 1 hour, turning occasionally.

3.  Preheat grill to medium heat.

4.  Place peaches, cut sides up, on a plate; drizzle with remaining 2 tablespoons vinegar.

5.  Place pork on grill rack coated with cooking spray; grill 3 minutes on each side or until pork is done. Set aside.

6.  Place peaches, cut sides down, on grill rack; grill 4 minutes or until soft and slightly browned. Turn and cook 2 minutes or until heated through. Cut each peach half into 4 slices. Slice pieces of pork into 1-inch-thick strips.

7.  Drizzle trimmed arugula with reserved 1 tablespoon juice mixture, tossing to coat. Divide arugula evenly among 4 plates. Top with grilled pork strips and peach slices; sprinkle evenly with turbinado sugar.
