My brother Matthew has been asking for a pork chop recipe since February. I just couldn’t bring myself to grill in the cold weather, so I put it off for a few months. Thankfully, the recent spring air in Chicago put me in the grilling mood and I finally found the motivation to make these delightful Cilantro and Lime Grilled Pork Chops!

I wanted to keep these pork chops light and springy, so I marinated them in a zesty lime sauce. The flavors of the chicken stock, lime juice, orange juice, garlic, cilantro, and red pepper flakes were a perfect combination that helped make the meat tender and zippy. These ingredients provided great flavor for the meal and really channeled what makes spring weather so great.

To be honest, I’m not much of a “grill master.” My wonderful husband always works the grill when needed, but I thought it was time to learn how. So… I strongly suggested he teach me the ropes for grilling and (even though I was a little nervous) I am so happy that I did! It’s great to learn new skills and now I feel comfortable working the grillーeven when my husband isn’t home!
