Directions

  1. In a small bowl, blend together: mayonnaise, yogurt, lime juice, cilantro, garlic, and chipotle chili powder.
  2. Measure 1/2 cup of mixture to a small container, and add up to 1 tablespoon chopped chipotles, to taste.
  3. Set aside; this will be the sauce after the chops are cooked.
  4. For immediate cooking: Preheat grill (or broiler) and cook chops to desired doneness, about 10 minutes total, turning often and brushing with first mayonnaise-chipotle mixture.
  5. Serve with reserved sauce.
  6. For OAMC: Place pork chops and first mayonnaise-chipotle mixture into gallon freezer bag and seal.
  7. Place sauce mixture into small freezer-safe container or bag and seal.
  8. Place both bags together into another gallon freezer bag.
  9. Label, date and freeze.
  10. To cook: Thaw completely. Preheat grill (or broiler) and cook chops to desired doneness, about 5 minutes per side.
  11. Serve with reserved sauce.

I made this for our evening meal and it was quick and easy, I made the marinade in the morning and left it in the fridge all day to marinade, so when I got in from work I just popped it under the grill. I think it was very tasty but I maybe didn't get the same flavour as I couldn't get chipotle powder and just used plain chilli powder, but I did have chopped chipotles in white wine vinegar, so I used that also. I thought that it was very moist and tasty, thank you for a easy evening meal. Made for PAC spring 2009.

Although the basting sauce didn't seem to add a lot of flavor to the pork itself, it did keep the chops nice and moist. However, the sauce was perfect for dipping and added lots of flavor (and I could have eaten that by the spoonful itself). I might sprinkle the chops with chipotle and salt before cooking and basting next time.
