1. Stir together the onion and garlic with the
juices and cilantro.
2. Add the pork chops so they are covered
with the marinade. Cover and place in the
refrigerator for about 3 hours.
3. When ready to grill, remove chops from the
marinade, pat dry, and sprinkle evenly on
both sides with the salt and pepper.
4. Fit the Cuisinart® Griddler® with the grill
plates. Turn unit on. Select Smoke-less
mode and set both plates to Pork.
5. Once the grill comes to temperature, place
the chops on the grill in the closed position
and set the count-up timer. Pork chops are
done when an instant-read thermometer
reads 145°F in the thickest part, about
5 minutes.
6. Allow the chops to rest about 5 minutes
before serving.
