4 servings (serving size: 1 pork chop and 1/4 cup sauce)

Chimichurri - an Argentine condiment - is a thick herb sauce packed with flavor. Roasted potatoes are the perfect accompaniment. You can also prepare this recipe with a pork tenderloin or pork loin.

How to Make It

Step 1

To prepare pork chops, combine 3/4 cup chicken broth and chipotle chile in a blender; process until smooth. Combine chile mixture and pork chops in a large zip-top plastic bag. Seal and marinate in refrigerator 2 hours. Remove chops from bag; discard marinade.

Step 2

To prepare Chimichurri Sauce, combine parsley and next 7 ingredients (parsley through garlic) in a blender; process until smooth. Pour into a bowl; stir in carrot and onion. Set aside.

Step 3

Prepare grill.

Step 4

Place the chops on grill rack coated with cooking spray; cook 5 minutes on each side or until done. Serve with Chimichurri Sauce.

A little too spicy for the kids. Wonderful mix of flavors. I left out the carrots in the sauce and it was still delicious!

Pretty good. My chimichurri sauce ended up being a very bright, almost lime green, which definitely made the dish look cool. It was good with the pork chops and sweet potato fries.

Not for us. Couldn't find Chipotle in Adobe anywhere, so just used hot peppers. The Chimichurri sauce just tasted like salad and so we didn't use it on the pork chops

Marinated the pork chops overnight. Not a fan of parsley, so I substituted it with cilantro and it tasted great!

Cmonington, these days they have Chipotle in all supermarkets. Look in the Hispanic Foods isle. It's in a can, but usually the cans are smaller than the size of can you are used to seeing. And also, LaurenWB, you use ONE pepper not the whole can. Holy Moly that must have been HOT!

Does anyone know where to even buy Chipolte Chile in Abado Sauce? I've checked Walmart and Price Chopper and neither have it. Even spoke to the store managers.

VERY spicy...I used the can of chipotle peppers in adobe sauce and my mouth was on fire. It would have been a nice taste if it weren't so hot.

Sauce was delicious. I used pork loin and the cuts were too thin. Should have followed the recipe for a chop. Make sure the thickness is 3/4"

I really didn't care for the flavor of the marinade.

We rated this a 7.5 out of ten. Should have marinated it longer and it probably would have been more of an 8. Neither of us like the sauce, the vinegar was to overpowering for us. I had some raspberry chipotle sauce that we used after the other was a failure and it was good on it. Pork chops were very juicy for sure.
