Near the center of colonial Old Havana and the Havana’s Amphitheater a chance meeting happens, when the restaurant Café de los Artistas suddenly appears.
cuba recipes - The Genuine Cuban Cuisine
This is the perfect recipe for those who love the flavors of a classic Cuban pork roast but are cooking in small quantities. Typical of Cuban fare, these are full of tropical flavors but not spicy. The garlic and lime pair beautifully in a fragrant marinade. Though you can marinade as briefly as an hour, for best results let the pork soak up to 6-8 hours. (Don't marinade overnight as the citrus cooks the pork over longer periods).
Trim excess fat from pork chops. Use a knife to cut shallow cross-hatch marks over both surfaces of the chops.
Mix all remaining ingredients together in a resealable bag or non-reactive container. Add the chops and place in the refrigerator. Marinate at least an hour. Grill or broil 8-10 minutes, turning once half way.
