Grilled Cuban-Style Pork Chops

Grilled Cuban-Style Pork Chops

source: Derrick Riches

6 pork chops, about 1 inch thick
3 tablespoons orange juice
4 cloves garlic, minced
2 tablespoons lime juice
2 tablespoons olive oil
2 tablespoons fresh cilantro, chopped
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon red pepper flakes

Place pork chops in a resealable plastic bag. Combine remaining ingredients and pour over meat. Seal bag and allow to marinate for 4-12 hours in refrigerator. Preheat grill for medium heat. Remove pork chops from bag and discard marinade. Place chops onto grill and cook for 10-12 minutes per side. When meat is no longer pink, remove from heat and serve.

the marinade sounds really good! do you find the pork chops to be tender after grilling them?

As long as the chops are atleast 1 inch thick and you follow the time recomendations in the recipe , YES!

If you cook them to death, then no.

Todays pork does not need to be dry and tasteless. Use medium heat,moderate cooking times, and enjoy!


Thanks for the response. I have not had much luck with grilling pork chops (they tend to be tough and dry) but I will definitely try this recipe!!!
