I loved this as did my kids. My husband did not. Too bad for him. I did add two tbsp. of honey to thicken up the marinate a bit and I used just-squeezed lime juice. I let this sit in the marinate in a shallow baking dish all day. Intense flavor. I suggest you scrunch up the rosemary a bit with a mortar and pestle(or do what I did and use a bowl and the bottom of your ice cream scooper) to bring out the flavor more. Read More

I used this recipe as someone suggested to marinate pork prior to making the stuffed pork tenderloin. I marinated it overnight. The flavor of lime was a bit too strong for my liking but since the pork was stuffed it evened out the strong taste. Next time I might just marinate it for a couple of hours. Read More

great recipe! i had no fresh lime juice or garlic cloves on hand. So i substituted lemon juice and garlic powder (to taste) and it was fabulous! my 4 chops marinated for 3 hours. I baked in pan a little with olive oil and remaining marinade at 375 for about 25 mins basting periodically. JUICY! DELICIOUS! also its a tad spicy not for the kidos. Read More

1/2 cup of lime juice was a bit too much for my tastes. Next time I'll try it with 1/4 cup. Otherwise very tasty and nice way to dress up pork chops. I wish I had a way to give this 4.5 stars. Read More

this was yummy but I added olive oil little bit of water and some sugar. It was too pungent and sour so that's why I altered it Read More

Very good but could use more depth. Perhaps something sweet to offset it a bit? Read More

My wife really enjoyed this one. It has a citrus like flavor which works really well with pork. I worried that the cayenne pepper left to marinade for many hours may make the meat too spicy hot. Turns out it was fine. In fact I might add more cayenne pepper next time I try this; we could barely taste that ingredient. Read More
