Marinated Chops 'n' Onion Recipe

"The first time I made this spicy dish, my husband commented on how moist the pork was, so I knew it was a keeper," relates Connie Brueggeman of Sparta, Wisconsin. It gets eye-appeal from red onion slices that turn a pretty pink when they're cooked.
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 15 min. + marinating Grill: 20 min. YIELD:4 servings

Ingredients

  • 2 cups lime juice
  • 2 teaspoons salt, optional
  • 1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • 4 bone-in pork loin chops (7 ounces each)
  • 1 large red onion, sliced, divided
