Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup lime juice
  • 1/2 cup reduced-sodium soy sauce

  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 6 boneless pork loin chops (4 ounces each)
  • SALSA:

In a large resealable plastic bag, combine the lime juice, soy sauce, honey and garlic. Add pork chops. Seal bag and turn to coat; refrigerate for 8 hours or overnight.
Drain and discard marinade. Grill chops, covered, over medium heat or broil 4-5 in. from the heat for 4-5 minutes on each side or until a thermometer reads 145°. Let meat stand for 5 minutes before serving.
