"I had rather large pork chops, so I doubled the rub. I used the baking (not broiling) method and the chops came out nice, juicy AND tasty... Hint: This goes really well with homemade guacamole and tortilla chips. Mighty fine recipe! We will be making this again, for sure! ~The Mad Slovak~"
"I knew from the list of ingredients that I couldn't go wrong with this one, and I was right. We love the flavor of these chops. I broiled mine and they turned out great. A definate keeper of a spicy rub recipe! Made for Pick-A-Chef Fall 2011."
"These were real good! I doubled recipe as I had 8 pork chops, I think I shall make extra next time to coat the chops more heavily. I also squeezed the juice of half a lime into the rub as another reviewer did, will use a whole lime next time, will add maybe a dash or two of cayenne and/or Ginger next time too. I washed and dried the chops, then rubbed them all over with the mix, covered and refrigerated for maybe an hour until I was ready to cook them. I think they'd benefit from being in the fridge longer, maybe even overnight. I seared them 2 minutes each side (they were one inch thick) and placed in a glass 13 x 9 dish, then added a little water to the bits left in the pan and drizzles over the chops, then covered tightly with foil and baked at 350 for 35-40 mins. I let them rest, keeping them covered, for about half an hour until the rest of the meal was done. They were PERFECT and tender, just think that rub needs a little somethingl. By the way, squeezing a little lime on the chops on your plate,,,really adds some zing! Very good! I served with twice baked potatoes and steamed broccoli with parmessan. Very nice meal."
"My husband and I really enjoyed this rub. The only thing we did differently was to squeeze a half of a lime right into the rub mix. Grilling them with this rub made the pork taste like a beef steak that was made in a fine restaurant. We will make this again. Thanks for sharing your recipe."
"Great pork chops. I was afraid it would be too spicy for my son. But he loved it. So easy to do. Thanks Nemokitty :) Made for I recommend tag game"
"Truly tasty. The flavors were great and went well with the pork. We grilled our chops. Made for 123 tag."
"This was full of flavor. It was quick and easy. Will make again and again. Thanks for sharing your lovely recipe :) Made for 1~2~3 Hits ~ Spring 2010 tag"
"Followed your recipe right on down (well, except that I used lemon pepper instead of the usual S&P) & served up some very flavorful chops ~ Definitely different from what I usually fix, & wonderful! I look forward to having company around the next time I make this one! Thanks for sharing it! [Made & reviewed in 1-2-3 Hit Wonders tag]"
"Delicious! I omitted the olive oil and used it as a dry rub. It was easier to apply to the pork chops. I have also done this with chicken thighs. Thank you. I loving broiling. It keeps the meat from drying out."
"This was very good. I think I might have overcooked it, so I'll rate it the next time. The flavor is very nice. I forgot the lime in the beginning, and when adding that, it perked the chop up a bit. Next time, I'm broiling. I think the baking may have lead to the dryness."
"Do I detect a Latin vibe? Oiled, chiseled and deeply tanned with the cumin and lime making for a suggestive melody. Made for Everyday Is A Holiday."
