Summer flavors are here! And I'm marinating and rubbing, hubby's thrillin' and grillin' his way into all kinds of yummy stuff. My latest craze: PORK!
Grilled pork ribs, chops, pork steaks - all things pork and smoky! This summer I am in the mood for pork, but I wanted a twist on a Mexican marinade with something sweet and smoky - this is what I've come up with using pantry basics with a fully loaded spice cabinet and a few fresh limes that I needed to use up. To pair with this yummy entree, peach lime spritzer - a favorite summertime treat.
1/8 C. worchestershire sauce ($.10)
1/8 C. white wine ($.10)
2 T. Liquid smoke ($.10)
2 T. minced garlic ($.05)
1 T. basil ($.05)
2 tsp. black pepper ($.10)
3 T. brown sugar ($.05)
2 tsp. each smoked paprika and onion powder ($.10)
juice of 2 limes ($.20)
1 sliced lime ($.10)
Whisk together all ingredients except sliced lime. Lay slices of lime on top of pork chops, top with marinade. Allow to marinate for 2 hours to 2 days. Grill pork chops and serve with rice, salad, and additional lime wedges and sliced avocado.
Cost of marinade: $1.05
