1/4 cup orange juice

2 teaspoons chopped fresh mint (optional)

1 teaspoon balsamic vinegar

1/2 teaspoon McCormick® Ground Cinnamon

2 peaches or 3 nectarines, peeled, cut in small cubes (2 cups)

6 boneless pork chops, 1-inch thick

3 tablespoons McCormick® Grill Mates® Pork Rub

1 cup raspberries


MIX orange juice, mint, vinegar and cinnamon in medium bowl. Add peaches; toss to coat well. Set aside.

RUB Pork Rub evenly on both sides of each pork chop.

GRILL over medium heat 5 to 7 minutes per side or until desired doneness. Gently toss raspberries with peach mixture. Serve with pork chops.

Substitution Tip: Use 1 can (15 ounces) sliced peaches, drained and chopped, and 1/4 cup frozen raspberries, thawed, in place of the fresh fruit. Use only 1 tablespoon of the orange juice.
