4 porterhouse (bone-in loin) pork chops, about 1-inch thick
2 teaspoons paprika
To taste, salt and black pepper
Olive oil, for brushing
4 pieces corn, shucked
2 teaspoons olive oil
4 tablespoons butter, unsalted, at room temperature
2 tablespoons cilantro, chopped
1 tablespoon chipotle chile in adobo sauce, chopped*
1 teaspoon lime juice, fresh


Prep: 10 Minutes
Cook: 25 Minutes
  1. Preheat grill over medium high heat and brush with olive oil. Sprinkle paprika, salt and pepper on both sides of the chops.
  2. Grill the pork for 8-9 minutes, turning once halfway through, until cooked to
    145° F. Remove the pork from the grill, tent it with foil and let it rest for 3 minutes.
  3. Brush the corn with olive oil and place on the grill. Grill the corn for a few minutes on each side, turning regularly until it is charred. Remove from grill and set aside.
  4. In a food processor, combine softened butter, cilantro, chipotle pepper and freshly squeezed lime juice. Pulse for 1 minute until it’s fully combined.
  5. Dish up 1 tablespoon of the compound butter on top of each piece of pork, and serve alongside a piece of corn on the cob.


*You can find chipotle pepper in adobo sauce canned in the ethnic or Latin section of most major supermarkets.


Serving Suggestion:
This is a fun recipe to play with. You can alter the compound butter for a completely different spin on the dish! Subbing in various types of herbs would be an easy flavor swap – try parsley instead of cilantro, or garlic instead of the chipotle peppers.
