Just made these for a dinner party and everyone really liked them. Next time I'll omit the water for a thicker sauce though. Also just used a little lime juice since I only had 1 lime and used bottled lemon juice for the rest. Still super delicious!

Tasty & easy! Love the zip from the lime, and the water/lime approach really helped to produce tender, juicy chops. I am going to keep this recipe handy for quick dinner ideas!

fantastic. but i did it a little differently. i used a mortar and pestle to mash the garlic, then rubbed it on pork chops sitting in a bowl of squeezed lemon and some sea salt.
