Crowd-pleaser grilled pork is ideal for summer backyard grilling. Tip: the way to flavor-filled, garlicky pork chops is in the oregano-salt curing and citrus-soaked marinade. 

How to Make It

Step 1

Combine first 4 ingredients. Pat pork dry with paper towels; sprinkle with salt mixture. Place pork on a rimmed baking sheet; cover and refrigerate 2 to 4 hours.

Step 2

Place pork between 2 layers of plastic wrap; pound to 1/4-inch thickness using a meat mallet. Place pork in a zip-top plastic bag.

Step 3

Combine juices, garlic, and 1 teaspoon pepper in a bowl; reserve 1/4 cup juice mixture. Add remaining juice mixture to pork; let stand 30 minutes.

Step 4

Preheat grill to medium-high heat.

Step 5

Remove pork from marinade; discard marinade. Place pork on grill rack coated with cooking spray; grill 1 minute on each side. Cover grill; grill 5 minutes.

Step 6

Place pork on a platter. Drizzle reserved 1/4 cup juice mixture over pork.

The pork came out fantastic.  I sliced the pork and used it in some soft tacos but next time, I'll just have the chops with some sides.  Tender and juicy.  Excellent flavors.
