Cuban Pork Chop Rub

Time again for yet another recipe exchange. I'm a little late getting this posted, but it certainly was really good.
Cuban Rub

2 tablespoons grated lime zest (didnt have any limes so i used lemon, still tasted good)
1 tablespoon cumin seed or ground cumin
1 tablespoon cracked black pepper
1/2 teaspoon salt (I omitted as always)
2 tablespoons EVOO
4 cloves garlic, finely chopped

4 boneless pork loin or rib chops, about 1 inch thick (about 2 pounds)

Mango slices, if desired

1. Heat coals or gas grill for direct heat. Remove excess fat from pork. In small bowl, mix all Cuban Rub ingredients; rub evenly on both sides of pork.

2. Cover and grill pork 4 to 6 inches from medium heat 8 to 10 minutes, turning frequently, until pork is no longer pink and meat thermometer inserted in center reads 160°F. Garnish with mango slices.
