  • 6 boneless pork loin chops, cut ¾ inch thick (1½ to 1¾ pounds total)
  • 2 tablespoons packed brown sugar
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons orange juice
  • 2 tablespoons snipped fresh cilantro
  • 1 tablespoon red-wine vinegar or cider vinegar
  • 2 teaspoons hot chili powder
  • 1 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano, crushed
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ¼ teaspoon ground red pepper (optional)
  • ¼ teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced


  • Prep

  • Ready In

  1. Trim fat from chops. Place chops in a sealable plastic bag set in a shallow dish. Combine brown sugar, oil, orange juice, cilantro, vinegar, chili powder, cumin, oregano, salt, ground red pepper (if desired), cinnamon and garlic in a small bowl. Pour over chops; seal bag. Marinate in the refrigerator for 2 hours to 24 hours, turning occasionally.
  2. Drain chops, discarding marinade. For a charcoal grill, grill chops on the rack of an uncovered grill directly over medium coals for 12 to 15 minutes or until chops are done (160°F), turning once halfway through grilling. (For a gas grill, preheat grill. Reduce heat to medium. Place chops on grill rack over heat. Cover and grill as above.)
