The BEST pork chops ever! Followed the recipe exactly, using 1.5 pounds (3 thick) of pork chops and marinating for 4 hours. My daughter used to say "eww" to pork chops but tonight she went back for seconds! They were fabulous! Served with salad and plantains :) Thanks for sharing! (Btw, cooking time varies depending on chop thickness. Did not use cooking times from the recipe, but our own eye.)

Wow. This is excellent, and super easy. My husband grew up in the Valley, and loves lemon and limes. We make this recipe all the time.

Cut back on the lime juice as suggested by others but still far too strong a flavor. As well, 8 minutes was about 3 minutes too long to grill the chops, they turned out rather dry.

These were easy and turned out somewhat flavorful despite the short marinating time. However, I thought that the lime was far more pronounced that the spices, which was a bit disappointing.

Added a little mesquite seasoning and these were really good.

While these are not bad, I agree with a review by Kat in DC - there are some missing flavors and the lime juice is too strong. Also, I usually find that ground spices require longer cooking when paired with citrus. I'll probably make this again with some significant changes, including trying a version that braises the pork to tenderness. This recipe is a good start to something better.

The flavor of this recipe is pretty good, however, I still cannot grill pork without it getting dried out. I would definitely make these again. Thanks for sharing.
