Infuse your pork chops with incredible flavor with this simple Cuban-style Mojo marinade.

Mixed with a generous amount of garlic, and traditional Cuban spices like oregano and cumin, mojo makes pork tender and delicious.

Step 1

In medium mixing bowl, using whisk, whisk together Naranja Agria, onions, olive oil, garlic, Adobo, oregano and cumin until well combined. Transfer ¼ cup mojo marinade to small bowl; stir in cilantro. Cover and set aside in refrigerator.

Step 2

Pour remaining marinade in large, non-reactive container. Add pork chops, flipping to completely coat and submerge in marinade. Cover. Transfer to refrigerator; marinate at least 2 hours, or up to 24 hours for best results. Remove pork chops from refrigerator 30 minutes before grilling. Drain and discard marinade.

Step 3

Prepare grill to medium-high heat. (Or, heat large grill pan over medium-high heat). Season pork chops all over with Adobo. Add chops to hot, greased grill grates. Cook, flipping once after 5 minutes, until pork is dark golden brown on both sides and cooked through (quick-read thermometer inserted into center of pork chop without touching bone registers 145°F), 10-12 minutes.

Step 4

Transfer pork to serving platter. Drizzle with reserved mojo-cilantro mixture. Serve with Avocado and onions.
