Grilled Pork and Pineapple

Makes: 4 servings
Start to Finish: 18 mins

4 3/4 inches thick boneless top loin pork chops (about 1 1/4 lb. total)
Salt (optional) and ground black pepper
1 peeled and cored fresh pineapple
3 tablespoons orange marmalade
1/2 cup plain yogurt
1/4 cup roasted, lightly salted cashew halves and/or pieces or toasted pecans, coarsely chopped
Fresh thyme (optional)

Sprinkle both sides of pork lightly with salt and pepper. Cut pineapple crosswise into 1/2-inch-thick slices; set aside.
For a charcoal grill, grill chops on the rack of an uncovered grill directly over medium coals for 4 minutes. Turn; add pineapple to grill. Brush chops and pineapple with 2 tablespoons of the marmalade. Grill 3 to 5 minutes more or until an instant-read thermometer inserted in pork registers 160 degrees F, turning pineapple once. (For a gas grill, preheat grill. Reduce heat to medium. Place chops on grill rack over heat. Cover; grill as above).

Meanwhile, combine yogurt and remaining 1 tablespoon marmalade; season to taste with additional ground black pepper.

Arrange pineapple and chops on serving plates. Spoon yogurt mixture over chops and pineapple; sprinkle with nuts and garnish with herb.
