Buy one whole pork loin, trim it if needed, then slice it into 1-1/2
inch thick boneless loin chops. Preheat your grill to medium high.
Season each of the loin chops with a bit of lemon pepper seasoning and black pepper. Grill over direct heat for about 5 minutes per side. Use a good meat thermometer, and remove the loin rounds to a platter when the internal temperature reaches 145 degrees Fahrenheit. Cover with a tent of foil to rest for 10 minutes.
As the pork is grilling and resting, combine the sauce ingredients.
Blend ingredients in a medium mixing bowl.
Place one or two grilled pork loin slices on a serving plate. Top each with a heaping tablespoon of cranberry orange sauce. Add a sprig of fresh parsley for added color.
