Prep Time 10 minutes

Yield

Makes 4 servings

Ingredients

3/4 pound boneless pork loin chops (1 inch thick), trimmed of fat and cut into 1-inch pieces
1-1/2 teaspoons ground cumin
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
1/4 teaspoon ground red pepper
1/4 cup red raspberry fruit spread
1/4 cup sliced green onions
1 tablespoon orange juice
3 plums, pitted and cut into wedges

Preparation

  1. Place pork in large resealable food storage bag. Combine cumin, cinnamon, salt, garlic powder and red pepper in small bowl. Sprinkle over meat in bag. Shake to coat meat with spices.
  2. Prepare grill for direct grilling. Combine raspberry spread, green onions and orange juice in small bowl; set aside.
