pork chop recipe

This recipe calls for 6 lean pork chops cut ½ inch thick and a grill. Flavorful and spicy, these pork chops are nothing like your average fried chops.

Step One: Prepping the Marinade

•3/4 cup water
•1/3 cup lemon juice
•1/3 cup chopped onion
•1 tablespoon packed brown sugar
•1 tablespoon chopped green onion
•1 tablespoon canola oil
•3/4 teaspoon sea salt
•3/4 teaspoon ground allspice
•3/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
•3/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
•1/2 teaspoon dried thyme, crushed
•1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper, or to taste

To make the marinade, place the water, lemon juice, chopped onions, brown sugar, chopped green onions, black pepper, thyme, and cayenne pepper into a food processor or blender. Blend until you reach a nice smooth consistency. Use half of the mixture for marinating and save the other half for basting.
