Make

  1. If cooking pork on grill: Preheat grill to 500F (260C) degrees to get the grates nice and hot. Once grill hits 500F (260C), turn down the burners on one part of the grill, and add pork chops to the hottest part of the grill. Grill pork chops on each side for 3 minutes and then move them to the part of the grill with lower heat. Close cover and cook pork chops for another 3 to 8 minutes (depends on thickness), until they reach 145F (63C) degrees.
  2. If cooking pork on stovetop: Heat a grill pan or skillet over medium-high heat. Add cooking oil. Add pork chops to the pan and sear on both sides for 3 minutes. Lower heat to medium, cover with foil and cook for another 3 to 6 minutes (depends on thickness), until they reach 145F (63C) degrees.
  3. Place green beans in a microwave safe bowl. Cover with a wet paper towel and microwave until tender (1 ½ minutes for thinner beans and closer to 2 ½ minutes for thicker beans). Toss with lemon zest and juice and season to taste with some salt and pepper.
  4. Serve pork chops with mango salsa over top and green beans on the side!

Subbed Costco chicken skewers for pork. Salsa is delicious! Would probably save time next time and buy Safeway fresh made version.
