Ingredients

  • 1 Pound pork medallions
  • 1 poblano pepper, charred
  • 1 mango, peeled, seeded, and diced
  • 1/4 Cup finely diced red onion
  • 5 grape tomatoes, diced finely
  • 1/2 Cup cilantro, chopped
  • Juice of 1 lime
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste
  • 1 Tablespoon olive oil

Directions

Leave the pork out at room temperature for at least 15 minutes. Combine the next 6 ingredients in a bowl and season with salt and pepper, to taste. Mix well and set aside.

Preheat a grill or cast-iron grill pan on high heat for 5 minutes.

Coat the pork with olive oil and season with salt and pepper, to taste. Reduce the heat to medium, place on the grill and cook until opaque halfway up the sides, about 10-12 minutes. Then, flip and cook the other side for 10-12 more minutes. Remove from the heat and serve with the salsa.

Grill Shopping Tip

Think twice before buying a thicker piece of meat; a 2-inch thick steak takes four times (not twice) as long as 1-inch thick steak to cook.

Grill Cooking Tip

If you're cooking something that's been marinated, make sure to pat the item dry before it hits the grill. Any sugar in the marinade will burn.
