Maine-iac, this was such a wonderful recipe. Simplicity itself that cannot be improved on. I loved the marinade with cumin (a staple in my house). Easy to make and easier to eat. My family really enjoyed this dish. You can bet I will be making this one again. Thanks!

This was edible but nothing I'd make again. The only good thing I can say is that it made the house smell good, but they didn't follow through on taste.

This was good, not great. I love lime, but I thought the recipe had too much of it, so I used about half the amount. The pork chops were pretty good, but the remaining sauce was still too limey, even with the reduced amount, so I served the pork chops without it. Basically an average recipe and not something I would make again.
