Boneless, center cut pork chops marinated in a brine of fresh lime juice and cilantro; then grilled to perfection.
The funny thing is that since I created all of these recipes, there are only a handful of them that I’ve made since. I know you might find that hard to believe that someone can have that much of a variety in their meal planning, but YES my family can attest to the fact that I’ve made something new almost every day for the last 2 years! They like my experiments and the first thing they do when they come home is look to see what I’ve made next; though sometimes they just crave a burger and fries or take-out pizza. It’s all good. 🙂
So I decided that I would go back to the early days of CEK and pull out some of my family’s favorite recipes from the cookbook, make them again and share the recipe with you each week in a new segment called ‘Family Favorites’. I will also include the Nutritional Information since these were not included in the book.
For today’s post, I decided to share the first recipe I ever published here on the blog for Grilled Pork Chops with Lime and Cilantro. I didn’t even photograph it the first time and that’s a good thing (my early photo skills were horrific!). I just love this recipe. The brining keeps this lean cut of meat moist and tender, and the lime and cilantro add an extra layer of freshness. Besides, it reminds me that summer is on its way. ~Enjoy!

*For all of the main entrees in the cookbook, I also suggest side dishes that I’ve created that go along well with each recipe to help with your family meal planning.
