1lb boneless 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)
Olive Oil (use cooking spray to reduce calories)
You can also broil the peaches - somewhat easier if using a counter-top grill (like the George Foreman). Make sure your peaches are about the same ripeness, otherwise you'll end up with one that's soft and gooey and another that's firmer. Both are delicious!
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.
Preheat grill to medium heat.
Place peaches, cut sides up, on a plate; drizzle with remaining 2 tablespoons vinegar.
Place pork on grill rack coated with cooking spray; grill 3+ minutes on each side or until pork is done (mine took approx 6min on a George Foreman grill). Set aside.
Place peaches, cut sides down, on grill rack or on lightly oiled broiler pan; 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 and serve on top of the pork.
