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.
