Cilantro Marinated Pork Chops


Cilantro Marinated Pork Chops
This is an interesting combination of flavors that I tried by Pork loving Michael Symon. It’s an overnight must or up to 2 days. If you love cilantro, you will love this recipe.
Recipe type: Main
  • 1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
  • 2 teaspoons kosher salt
  • 2 teaspoons coriander
  • 2 teaspoons cumin
  • 1 teaspoon smoked paprika
  • Grated zest of 1 lime
  • ½ cup chopped cilantro
  • 2 thick cut Pork Chops (about 1 to 1 ½ inch thick)
  1. Combine the mustard, salt coriander, cumin, paprika, lime zest, and cilantro in a large zip lock bag and add the chops. Shake and massage the bag to coat the pork evenly and refrigerate overnight or up to 2 days. (The longer the more intense flavor of the herbs)
  2. When ready to cook, let the pork sit out for about 10 minutes before grilling.
  3. Heat your grill till about medium high and grill the chops until medium, about 4 to 5 minutes per side. Remove from grill and let rest for about 5 minutes. It’s ok if slightly pink in the center, means it will be juicy! It tastes great topped with arugula and a little olive oil.


V Favorite Dry Rubbed Ribs


V Favorite Dry Rubbed Ribs
Dry rub is by far my favorite type of Ribs. While bbq sauce is awesome too, I personally prefer going dry. This is a pretty common blend of ingredients for a dry rub. This one I just happen to like a lot! Plan ahead because this is an overnighter.
Recipe type: Main
  • ¼ cup cider vinegar
  • 4 teaspoons kosher salt
  • 1 teaspoon sugar
  • 1 teaspoon paprika (Hungarian if you got it)
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1 teaspoon coriander
  • 1 teaspoon cumin
  • 1 teaspoon dried mustard
  • 1 teaspoon chipotle powder
  • 2 slabs of baby back style rack of pork ribs
  1. Start by brushing both sides of the ribs with the vinegar. Thoroughly combine all the spices and liberally rub this mixture, and I mean massage those ribs good. Wrap the ribs tightly in plastic wrap and let sit overnight in the fridge to marinate.
  2. When ready to cook, heat the grill about low to medium. You don’t want it to be to hot cause it will burn off the awesome spices. If using wood chips in the grill, try apple-wood.
  3. Put the ribs up high to slow cook them. If you don’t have a grill set up for that, make sure your heat is low. Cook for 2 hours, turning constantly making sure they don’t get burned.
  4. To serve, cut the slabs into double or triple ribs.
  5. Serve with any bbq sauce if you like, but try them first without. I’m confident you won’t need any.
