  1. Make a jerk-inspired marinade by combining Tony’s Pork Marinade, habanero pepper, allspice, cinnamon, nutmeg, garlic, brown sugar, green onions, and Tony’s Original Creole Seasoning in a bowl. Whisk to combine.
  2. Add pork chops to a plastic zipper bag and pour half of the marinade over top. Let the pork chops marinate for at least an hour but up to overnight.
  3. Preheat your grill to 400°F.
  4. Remove the pork chops from the bag and place them onto the hot grill. Grill for 5-6 minutes per side until internal temperature reaches 145°F. Turn only once.
  5. Halfway through cooking, brush the reserved marinade over the pork chops to baste.
  6. Remove the pork chops from the grill and let them rest for 5 minutes.
  7. While the pork chops cook and rest, make the salsa by combining the pineapple, bell pepper, red onion, jalapeño, orange juice, lime juice, Tony’s Original Creole Seasoning and cilantro. Stir to combine.
  8. Serve the salsa over the pork chops and enjoy!
