Dinner tonight was delicious! The pork was moist and really flavorful! The sauce could have used some garlic or seasoning. I served this with Corn on the cob and bush’s baked beans. Yum!
Cuban Pork Chops
adapted from the pioneer woman
FOR THE CHOPS:
6-8 boneless Center Cut Pork Chops
2 cups Orange Juice
2 whole Limes, Juiced
5 cloves Garlic, Minced
2 teaspoons Cumin
1/2 teaspoon Cayenne Pepper
1 Tablespoon Dried Oregano
1 whole Small Yellow Onion, Halved And Sliced Thin
FOR THE SAUCE:
1 bunch Cilantro
1 bunch Parsley
1 cup Olive Oil
Salt And Pepper, to taste
Combine orange juice, lime juice, garlic, cumin, cayenne pepper, oregano, and onion in a large zipper bag. Squish it around to combine, then throw in the pork chops! Seal the bag and marinate them overnight.
While the chops are marinating, add cilantro and parsley leaves to a blender. Add olive oil and blend until smooth. Season with salt and pepper, then transfer the mixture to a small container and keep in the fridge.
Remove the pork chops from the marinade (discard the bag). Grill the pork chops until they’re totally done.
Spoon the sauce over the top of the chops to serve.
