Margarita Glazed Pork Chops
1/3 C. orange marmalade
1 jalapeno pepper, seeded and finely chopped
2 T. tequila or lime juice
1 tsp. grated fresh ginger or 1/2 tsp. ground ginger
4 boneless pork loin chops, cut 1-inch thick (about 1 1/2 lb. total
or use a pork tenderloin)
Snipped fresh cilantro
Lime and orange wedges (optional)
For glaze, stir together the orange marmalade, jalapeno, tequila or
lime juice and ginger in a small mixing bowl.
Trim fat from the pork chops.
For a charcoal grill, place the chops on the grill rack directly
over medium coals. Grill, uncovered, for 12 to 15 minutes or until
juices run clear, turning chops once and frequently brushing with
glaze during the last 5 minutes of grilling.
For a gas grill, preheat grill. Reduce heat to medium. Place the
chops on the grill rack, cover and grill as above.
To serve, sprinkle with cilantro. If desired, garnish with lime and
