Sweet and hot! Jalapeno pepper jelly, olive oil, lime juice, and fresh rosemary are used to make this marinade for pork loin chops. The chops can then be grilled or broiled.
INGREDIENTS (for 8 servings):
- 2 tablespoons olive oil
- 3 sprigs fresh rosemary
- 2 teaspoons lime juice
- 4 tablespoons jalapeno pepper jelly
- 8 pork loin chops (3/4 inch thick), trimmed
- salt to taste
- 1 tablespoon cracked black pepper
In a small bowl, combine the olive oil, rosemary, lime juice, and jalapeno jelly in a bowl, and whisk together. Place the pork chops and marinade in a resealable plastic bag. Remove the air from the bag, and seal; refrigerate for at least 2 hours, or overnight.
Preheat your grill for high heat, or preheat broiler.
Remove the chops from the marinade, and season with salt and pepper. Place the chops 2 to 3 inches above the white coals, or under the broiler. Cook the meat on both sides until done, turning frequently so the marinade doesn't burn.
