We are running low on staple foods right now so we are getting to that sad time in our fridge where inspiration and imagination take over. I came up with this marinade after putting together what was available. Excuse the sad looking limes, like I said it was the end of our groceries. This marinade is tangy and fresh tasting. I used it on some pork chops I cut from a pork loin. This would also taste good on chicken or shrimp.
Tangy Pork Chops
juice of two limes
4 garlic cloves
1.5″ of peeled ginger
1 tbsp rice wine vinegar
1 tsp sesame oil
meat of choice
In a food processor blend all the ingredients till smooth. Put meat in a zip top bag and add marinade.
Zip tightly and marinate in your fridge for up to 3 hours. Because of the acidity of this marinade I wouldn’t let it sit over night. What happens is it starts “cooking” the meat like in ceviche and you might end up with tough meat.
Grill meat and serve with a salad for a tangy, refreshing, summer time meal.
