• 4 (6 ounces each) lean boneless pork chops
  • 4 cloves garlic, crushed
  • 1 teaspoon cumin
  • 1 teaspoon chili powder
  • 1 teaspoon paprika
  • Fresh black pepper to taste
  • Juice of ½ lime (about 1 tablespoon)
  • Zest of ½ lime (about 1 teaspoon)


1. Trim any fat off pork. In a large bowl season pork with garlic, cumin, chili powder, paprika, and pepper. Add lime juice and lime zest. Allow pork to marinate at least 20 minutes. Line a broiler pan with foil for easy clean-up.

2. Place pork chops on the broiler pan and broil about 4-5 minutes on each side or until nicely browned.

3. Alternatively, grill pork chops on the outdoor grill over high heat, 4-5 minutes per side until the internal temperature reaches 145 degrees.
