BBQ Lime Pork Chops

"The lime juice seems to keep these chops tender and juicy. If you want something a little spicier just add 1 tsp of chili to the marinade."

  1. WOW!! These chops are delicious!! The lime flavor is just fabulous. Really makes this a stand-out. The meat was moist and juicy. Easy and perfect summertime fare. Thanks Bergy for a super recipe.
  2. Holy Yumminess!! This marinade is great!! After marinating the pork chops, I transferred the marinade into a small saucepan and boiled it while the chops broiled (no BBQ grills allowed in our apartments!) at the very last minute I added a pat of butter to the thickened sauce and poured it over the cooked chops...SOOO GOOD!!! I bet it would be great on fish or shrimp as well!!
  3. wonderful, juicy, bbq pork chops!! What a great combination of flavours in the marinade, the lime, honey and vinegar are a refreshing change!! This is a keeper Bergy and will be enjoyed time and again.
  4. I made these this evening and it was a little too much lime for us so I didn't add the sauce...We ate them, but they may have been better if I had made them on the grill outside instead of inside in the broiler... so I can't really say what they would have been like, if I had grilled them like the recipe called for. Everything is better on the grill! Sorry! I should have waited til the summer for this recipe. The weather is 0 degrees so that wasn't an option. Jelly
  5. Excellent! For people who actually enjoy lime, this was fantastic. 30 minutes seemed like the perfect amount of time to marinate. The pork was well flavoured and tender. The lime was very prominent, as a recipe with "lime" in the title very well should be. Perfect for a hot summer day. I'll be making this regularly. Thanks for sharing, Bergy!


On January 10 2010 I will celebrate 9 years of Life with Zaar. I can't imagine being without it! It has become part of my daily routine. I feel very privileged to be one of the hosts on the Photo Forum. Taking photos of my culinary efforts is a full time hobby and I love it. My friends all know what to expect when they come to dinner "Are you finished taking pictures?" or "Did you get a photo of so & so?" I never let them wait too long and the food is NEVER cold! I now have over 6000 photos on Zaar - some fairly good and some definitely not so good. I am happy to say that practice does help. My roots are in Vancouver BC Canada - a very beautiful city that holds many wonderful memories for me. In 1990, I decided that for my retirement years I may want to settle in a smaller community and found a slice of heaven in the North Okanagan B.C. I love living here but every once in a while I miss the bright city lights, the Broadway shows and some of the small wonderful ethnic restaurants that Vancouver abounds in. That is easily resolved. I just take a trip to the coast, visit with friends for a weekend see a show and feast on Dim Sum or other specialty foods. I am getting a bit long in the tooth but was a very adventurous person. I have river rafted Hell's Gate on the Fraser river, been up in a glider over Hawaii (no not a Hang Glider!), gone hot air ballooning in the Napa Valley & the Fraser Valley, driven dune buggies on the dunes in Oregon, Para sailing in Mexico and tried many other adventurous, challenging, fun things. I have yet to try bungee jumping or sky diving. I may do them yet. I love to travel and experience other cultures. Mexco has been a favorite haunt. I have visited that lovely country many many times. Australia is another favorite as is England! In the past 16 months I have taken off 61 pounds and feel wonderful. I am off all medications and all systems are GO! In years I may be 79 but in spirit I am still in my forties. We are only as old as we allow ourselves to feel. Always think positive. Do something a bit challenging every day & always do something silly every day. Be a kid again! Laugh every day - it is internal jogging.
