Serves: 4 

  • 375g pears
  • 1 red capsicum, diced
  • 1/3 cup finely chopped red onion
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 1/2 teaspoon Tabasco sauce
  • Salt
  • 3/4 teaspoon dried sage
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • Freshly ground black pepper
  • 4 well-trimmed centre-cut pork chops (185g each)

Preparation:20min  ›  Cook:10min  ›  Ready in:30min 

  1. Peel the pears and dice. Transfer to a large bowl. Add the capsicum, onion, lemon juice, Tabasco sauce and salt to taste. Toss to combine. Refrigerate until serving time.
  2. Preheat the griller. Combine the sage, ginger, garlic and salt and pepper to taste in a small bowl. Rub the mixture into both sides of the chops. Grill 15 cm from the heat for 3 to 4 minutes each side or until cooked through but still juicy. Serve with the pear salsa.

*Nashi, also known as Asian pears, are becoming much more common in shops and fruit markets. They are small and apple-shaped but taste like pears. Juicy and very crisp, nashi contain about one-third more fibre than regular pears.
*Canned pears packed in juice or water (not syrup) may be substituted for fresh in many recipes. However, they do contain considerably less vitamin C than fresh pears.
