Do you love grilled pork chops as much as I do? I LOVE them. And there is so many ways to dress them up. Also it’s an affordable cut of meat for most people. Win win!
These are rather quick to whip up, and even marinate. You could fix up them up in the morning, toss in the fridge and grill once you get home. Just allow the meat to warm up for about thirty minutes. Also, they aren’t crazy spicy. They are flavor full, but mild. So if you are cooking for a family, they are still kid friendly. But I’m sure that is a kid by kid basis, because what do I know about cooking for kids? You can decide that.
Anyways, serve these along side any vegetable you like and you’ve got yourself a meal. Quick. Simple. Healthy. Affordable. Tasty.
I get the feeling people tend to think healthy means expensive or time consuming but it isn’t. It’s basically like anything in life, its as expensive and time consuming as you make it out to be. And really your best investment is in yourself, your health, your family and their health. Why wouldn’t that be priority number 1? At the end of the day it is your choice, and we all take different approaches to that. I’m not the strictest person, but I find that I continue to get better at staying the course. As long as I keep trying. That’s what it is really all about: trying and continuing to try and get better. And keep putting those healthy meals on the table, your family will eat them. Hunger will get them there! Haha.
I served some roasted broccoli along side these chops for a summer evening dinner. Those will get their own spot on the blog at a later time. For now here you have the pork chops!
Honey Lime Chili Grilled Pork Chops
4 pork chops
2 limes juiced
¼ tsp lime zest
2 tablespoons honey
2 cloves garlic finely minced
1 tsp fine sea salt
½ tsp red pepper flakes
¼ tsp cayenne pepper
1 tablespoon Ancho Chile pepper powder
Combine all ingredients except pork chops in a bowl, and whisk thoroughly until combined. Place pork chops in a Ziploc gallon bag and pour the mixture over them. Toss them around in the mixture, and let them marinate for at least 4 to six hours.
Grill for about 5 to 7 minutes per side. I did 7 for the first side, flipped then finished them off in about 5 for the second side.
