Pork chops marinated in a spicy citrus marinade. Perfect for your next grill out!
Last weekend Marc and I were out with another couple and Marc was raving about his new favorite beer, the Boulder Beer Company’s Mojo IPA. He convinced one of them to order it too and after ordering there was a conversation on how to correctly pronounce “mojo.” Marc insisted the “j” is silent while our friend pronounced it Austin Powers style. Our waitress couldn’t even settle the mystery. After a little internet searching, it turns out there are two different definitions for ‘mojo’ and the one intended for the beer (which is provided on Boulder Beer’s website), pronounces the ‘j”. Yeah, baby, yeah style. Sorry Marc.
So the next day when I was looking for a pork chop recipe for some chops I bought at the farmers market, this one in particular caught my eye. Not only was the name ironic, but the spicy citrus marinade sounded intriguing. Note: the correct pronunciation for this mojo is the silent “j”. I adapted the original recipe which entailed cooking the pork chops on the stove top and making a gravy, to a version that I could grill the chops.
This turned out to be a really great summer meal…quick, easy, and tasty!
