Cuban-Style Grilled Pork Chops

Cuisinart original

Latin flavors work well with pork. Be sure to get the thick-cut pork chops for the best flavor and don’t overcook, which dries pork out.


Makes 4 servings


4          thick-cut boneless pork chops, about 2½ pounds in total
¼         cup olive oil
½         teaspoon dried oregano
½         teaspoon ground cumin
¼         to ½ teaspoon kosher salt
            pinch freshly ground black pepper
