Calories 500kcal

Ingredients

  • 2 boneless pork loin chops 6-ounces each
  • 1 teaspoon jerk seasoning
  • 1 red bell pepper finely diced
  • ½ seedless cucumber sliced
  • ½ cup blueberries
  • 1 shallot thinly sliced
  • 1 lime juiced
  • ½ teaspoon honey
  • Red chile flakes
  • 3 Tablespoons olive oil divided
  • ¼ cup fresh cilantro chopped
  • 6 cups baby kale

Instructions

  • Pat the pork dry with a paper towel; season with salt and rub all over with the jerk seasoning.
  • In a large bowl, combine the bell pepper, cucumber, blueberries, shallots, lime juice, honey, chile flakes, and 2 tablespoons oil and toss to coat. Season to taste with salt and pepper. Let stand while you prepare the pork.
  • In a medium frying pan over medium-high heat, warm 1 tablespoons oil until hot but not smoking. Add the pork and cook, turning frequently, until browned but still faintly pink within, 8 to 10 minutes. Transfer to a cutting board to rest for 5 minutes, then slice crosswise.
  • While the pork rests, add the baby kale and half the cilantro to the salad and toss to coat. Season to taste with salt and pepper. Top with sliced pork.
