Garlic-Lime Pork Chops

"I came up with this recipe because my husband loves pork chops and I was tired of eating them. It turned out to be so good, I wont make them any other way. The pork chops have a great lime flavor with a little kick. I always serve with rice and veggies. This recipe is for 2, but I have made it for 4. Just use smaller half inch pork chops."

  1. We loved these chops and plan to have again sometime!
  2. This recipe was found as a result of *PAC Spring 2008* and I marked it for later. Well this is later and I'm very happy that I made the recipe. Some fresh garlic was grated over the chops and lime juice. The creole seasoning was used eliminating the need for the adobo seasoning and additional salt. The lime flavor adds a nice touch.


I'm 23 yrs old and have been married for about a year. I just recently had a baby girl in July. I'm a stay home mom and I pretty much just learned how to cook. Before I got married, I had no idea how to cook any kind of meat. I could do the basics like boil water, cut vegetables up, make mac & cheese or make anything else that comes out of a box. Now I find myself being very creative in the kitchen and in the past 6 months, I haven't made a meal my husband didn't like. My next task is to start cooking food that they eat in my husbands country, the Bahamas.
