Recipe from package of pork chops.Prep time does not include marinating time. You can alternately use dried chipotle, just rehydrate in hot water for about 15 mins and then chop. I actually like this better as a marinade for pork tenderloin.
- 4 pork chops (about 1 1/4-inch thick, bone in or boneless)
- 1 canned chipotle chile in adobo, chopped
- 2 teaspoons oregano
- 2 garlic cloves, chopped
- 1⁄4 cup olive oil
- 2⁄3 cup lime juice (fresh!)
- 1 tablespoon fresh cilantro, chopped
- 1⁄2 teaspoon salt
- Place chops in large self-sealing plastic bag; combine remaining ingredients in a small bowl and pour over chops.
- Seal bag and refrigerate for up to 24 hours.
- Remove chops from marinade (discard marinade).
- Grill over medium-hot coals for a totoal of 12-15 mins, turning half-wayt thru, or until done.
One order of Chipotle Lime Marinated Chops and a margarita...and the next round's on me!
I used this marinade on thick-cut boneless pork chops, and omitted the cilantro, as I'm not a fan. Let the chops marinate for 24 hours, then put them, plus the excess marinade in the slow-cooker for 6 hours on low. Shredded the pork then used it in burritos. Absolutely delicious.
This is just what I was looking for. I had 4 pork chops that I wanted to grill but didn't want them to be dry. These turned out so flavorful and moist. The grilling time was perfect for me as I'm just starting to grill. I did add 1 more garlic clove, personal preference. I'll be using this often.
