Tonight's mission was a super simple dinner with lots of flavor - Grilled Cuban Pork Chops. Yum! I found this recipe on my iCookbook (sorry, no link since it is an app I downloaded from the Windows Store). Don't be fooled by the lack of ingredients because these little pork chops are full of flavor.
Here's what you'll need
4 pork chops, 1/2 in. thick w/bone-in
1 pkg Oretga Fajita seasoning
1/2 cup water
1 cup uncooked white rice
1 can pineapple, sliced
Begin by preparing your marinade. Mix together fajita mix and water, stir well to combine.
In a gallon size zipper bag, place the pork chops and pour marinade over meat. Seal bag and squish around to make sure the meat is coated. Place in refrigerator and marinade approximately 15 to 30 minutes prior to grilling.
My husband manned the grill tonight so I didn't get any photos. Grill the pork chops and pineapple until cooked through, approximately 15 minutes on each side (total 1/2 hour).
Serve pork chop and pineapple with rice. I added a couple of tablespoons of chopped cilantro, some lime juice, and salt to give the rice some flavor. This dish smelled amazing coming in from the grill and tasted great. This would make a great New Years dish!
