It’s the other white meat….and I am always looking for ways to cook it. Pork Chops and I don’t really get along. I always over-cook them and they turn tough! Or I just don’t like the flavor of them. So any time I can try a new way to cook them, I figure it is worth a shot.
This little diddy turned out pretty good, if I do say so myself. The flavor had a little “twang” that tickled my tongue just enough to make me take another bite. Try it for yourself and see what you think.
Fiesta Pork Chops
- 4 lean boneless pork chops, fat trimmed off
- 4 cloves of garlic, crushed
- 1.5 teaspoons of chili powder
- 1.5 teaspoons of paprika
- 1.5 teaspoons of cumin
- 1/4 cup of lime juice
- sea salt and fresh ground pepper
Season the pork chops with 1 teaspoon each of chili powder, paprika, and cumin, and salt and pepper. Pour the lime juice over the pork and let marinade for 1 hour.
Remove pork from marinade and let the excess lime juice drip off. Place pork on a broiler pan and sprinkle with the remaining seasoning. Broil for 4 – 5 minutes per side or until browned and pork reaches 145 degrees.
