I am in search of new grilling and marinade recipes. Sometimes it is easy to get stuck doing the same ol same ol every day. This marinade is a little sweet and tangy at the same time. It would also be great on chicken or swordfish. We all agreed it should be in the rotation!
Cuban Marinated Pork Chops
¾ cup extra virgin olive oil ¾ cup orange juice ½ cup lime juice 1 cup cilantro ¼ mint 8 garlic cloves 1 Tbsp oregano 1 Tbsp cumin 1 Tbsp orange zest 8 pork chops
Place extra virgin olive oil thru cumin in a food processor and run until it is finely chopped. Add the marinade to a zip lock bag. Add the zest to the bag and season with salt and pepper. Add the pork chops and marinate at least 30 minutes and up to 2 hours. Grill at high temperature until cooked through, 8- 10 minutes.
Everyone grills steak, chicken and pork. Grilled turkey tips are a nice change. This marinade/glaze is great on pork and chicken too!
Horseradish Maple Glaze Turkey Tips
2 Pounds Turkey Tenderloin cut into 1 inch pieces 1½ cups maple syrup ¼ cup prepared horseradish 1 Tbsp Dijon mustard 1 Tbsp ancho chile powder 2 Tbsp olive oil
Combine maple syrup, horseradish, mustard and chile powder. Mix well and season to taste with salt and pepper. Put the turkey tips in a ziplock bag. Add ½ of the glaze to the bag and add the olive oil. Seal bag and shake well. Marinate for at least 30 minutes and up to 4 hours. Heat a grill on high. Add the tips and brush with the remaining glaze as you cook the tips.
