- Place the pork loin chops in a clean, heavy plastic bag. Set the bag in a large bowl. Combine the lime juice, Worcestershire sauce, mustard, vinegar, water, cumin, salt, and pepper. Pour over the pork in bag; seal the bag. Marinate in the refrigerator for at least 4 hours or up to 24 hours, turning occasionally.
- Remove the pork from the bag, reserving marinade. Grill* pork on an uncovered grill directly over medium coals for 20 to 30 minutes or until thermometer registers 160 degrees F, juices run clear, and meat is slightly pink in center; halfway through cooking turn and brush with marinade. Serve with Summer Salsa. Makes 8 servings.
From the Test Kitchen

Because hot chile peppers contain volatile oils that can burn your eyes, lips, and skin, avoid direct contact with them as much as possible. When working with chili peppers, cover your hands with plastic bags (or wear plastic or rubber gloves). Be sure to wash your hands well with soap and water before touching your eyes or face.
- In a medium mixing bowl combine apricots or peeled peaches, sweet pepper, cucumber, green onion, jalapeno peppers, honey, lime juice, and cilantro or parsley. Cover; chill for up to 4 hours, stirring once or twice. Serve with a slotted spoon.
