Broiled Pork Chops with Warm Nectarines


  • 4 loin pork chops, trimmed of extra fat
  • 1/4 teaspoon coriander seeds
  • 1/4 teaspoon cumin
  • 1/2 teaspoon freshly-ground black pepper
  • 1/4 cup cider vinegar
  • 1 teaspoon rum (optional)
  • 4 nectarines, pitted, peeled and halved

1. Put the pork chops, coriander, cumin, and pepper in a sealable plastic bag and add the vinegar and optional rum. Fasten the bag and place in the refrigerator for 8 hours or overnight to marinate.
2. When ready to cook, preheat a broiler.
3. Place the chops on a broiling pan, along with the nectarines. Place the pan about 6 inches below the heat source. Broil 3 to 4 minutes per side. Remove and serve hot.
In this recipe, nectarines are cooked with the chops, giving a warm, sweet companion for the chops, which are marinated before cooking.
