Garlic-Lime Pork Chops

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.

    Just about one of the best grilled (I also made them on the grill) pork chop I have ever had. My family loved these.

    One of the best pork chop recipes we have had in a while. We grilled them 10 min./side instead of broiling and they turned out great. We also made twice the marinade: one batch for marinating and one for basting.
