I came up with this marinade when a friend of ours came over and brought pork chops for dinner. I decided on a citrus marinade because we had a bunch of oranges that needed to be used up, and I love citrus pork. I found a recipe, but it called for reducing the juice, adding some super spicy peppers, etc… so I just combined a couple recipes that called for ingredients that sounded good, and went for it.
The pork was tasty, tangy and delicious, perfectly grilled by Number One. Try this marinade, you won’t be sorry! Just don’t overcook your pork, or you will be sorry!
Juice of 4 oranges (just over 1 cup)
Juice of 2 limes (about 1/4 cup)
4 cloves garlic, minced
1 teaspoon orange zest
2 teaspoons dried oregano
1 teaspoon cumin seeds
1 tablespoon red wine vinegar
freshly ground pepper
Combine all ingredients in a large plastic bag. Add pork, seal and refrigerate for several hours, turning bag about every half hour.
Heat grill, remove pork from marinade and grill until pork is done, being sure not to overcook it.
