Garlic-Lime Pork Chops Recipe

Cilantro, lime and hot pepper sauce lend south-of-the-border pizzazz to boneless pork chops in this recipe from Paula Marchesi of Lenhartsville, Pennsylvania. "Pretty enough for company, these chops are tender, juicy and delicious," she says.

  • 1-1/4 teaspoons grated lime peel
  • 1/4 teaspoon hot pepper sauce
