Mexican Pork Chops


We have been trying to eat less Red Meat lately, much to my chagrin.

I purchased a value pack of pork chops and instead of freezing them all, my husband put some into a Ziplock and marinated them for 2 days before barbecuing them. He was going for a "Mexican" theme.

They were in a word "DELISH". Give it a whirl, the longer you marinate, the better they taste!!

4 pork chops (bone in)
1 jar of your favorite brand of Salsa
1 lemon or lime cut in half, add the juice and the lemon/lime itself
1/2 a white onion diced
2 tsp ground cumin
Bunch of Cilantro rinsed and chopped


Mix all the above in a Ziploc bag and marinate for one day, up to two days for extra flavor. When you think of it, flip the bag over in the fridge.

Grill on your barbecue!

Sounds like a very flavorful marinade. Never thought to use salsa as one. Great idea. Perfectly grilled too .. Delish indeed.
