I am so happy the warmer (warmer...still not warm) is starting to hit Wisconsin! Ron and I like to play around with different marinades for grilling. I had a few chipotle pepers left from a different recipe and I wanted to try and create a new marinade. This is a really easy marinade to put together and the flavor is great! Ron and I both loved the spicy sweet flavors of the pork chops. I think this would be fantasic on beef, chicken or even shrimp. Hope everyone has a fantasic weekend!
4-6 pork chops
3 chipotle peppers in adobo
2 Tbl adobo sauce
1/2 tsp cumin
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp black pepper
2 Tbl brown sugar
Zest and juice of 1 lime
1 cup fresh cilantro
1/4 cup olive oil
1 cup beer
Place all ingredients (besides the pork chops and beer) into a food processor or blender. Pulse till all ingredients are blended together.
Place pork chops into a ziplock. Add marinade and beer. Gently rotate bag to mix ingredients.
Allow pork chops to marinate for at least 6 hours, but overnight is best.
Remove pork chops from bag. Grill 4-5 minutes per side (7-8 if it is a thick chop) and serve immediately.
