Pork With Pineapple-Pimiento Salsa

1 (8-ounce) can pineapple tidbits (undrained)

1 (8-ounce) can Spanish tomato sauce
1 (7-ounce) jar diced pimientos (3/4 cup; drained)
1/2 cup pre-diced red onions
1/4 teaspoon kosher salt
1/4 teaspoon ground allspice
4 boneless pork chops (about 1 1/2 lb)
1 teaspoon Complete seasoning
1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
8–10 sprigs fresh cilantro (rinsed)

1. Combine in medium bowl, pineapple, tomatoes, tomato sauce, pimientos, onions, salt, and allspice; set aside.
2. Preheat large sauté pan on medium-high 2–3 minutes. Sprinkle both sides of pork chops with Complete seasoning (wash hands).
3. Place oil in pan; swirl to coat. Add pork chops (wash hands); cook 2–3 minutes on each side or until browned.

Use a meat thermometer to accurately ensure doneness. While pork chops cook, chop cilantro coarsely.
5. Sprinkle cilantro over pork chops and serve.
