Grilled Skinny Chops with Chili Jalapeno Lime

Last night’s beer brewing session went like a bad first date- there was a bunch of sticky fumbling and a couple of first degree burns. The indescribable carnage has me thinking that the stove and I could use some time apart, hence the grilling recipe.   Paper thin pork chops are a rare find, but well worth the search.

 

Ingredients:

1 C chopped jalapeno peppers

5 limes, sliced

1 T sugar

1 T chili powder

2 lb. ultra-thin pork chops

 

Directions:

  1. Place ingredients in a large casserole.
  2. If you are a masochist with few small cuts on your hands, here is the part you are going to dig- Manually mix the ingredients, occasionally, over a period of 1-2 hours. (Yeah, there is nothing like lime and jalapeno in a (clean) open wound.
  3. Grill the chops over medium heat.

Tasting notes:

Today marks my first experience with a “dry” marinade. Frequent mixing left the meat flavorful and left me washing my hands with remarkable frequency.  The chops, as stated, were full of flavor- mostly lime flavor.  Inexplicably, much of the jalapeno/chili flavor was conspicuously understated.  Perhaps a finer dice on the jalapeno may have helped.  Nonetheless, the Skinny Chops scored well with the ITP and were, thusly, a rousing success.
