Ingredients

  • 2 limes, 1 zested and juiced, 1 quartered
  • 2 tbsp canola & sunflower oil blend, divided
  • 2 tsp ground cumin
  • 1/4 tsp each salt and pepper
  • 4 bone-in pork chops (about 6 oz/175 g each)
  • 1/2 cup Roasted Tomato Chipotle Salsa
  • 1/2 cup chopped fresh cilantro

Method

  1. Preheat oven to 350°F (180°C). In a large bowl, combine lime zest, 2 tsp (10 mL), lime juice, 1 tbsp (15 mL) oil, cumin, salt and pepper. Add pork to mixture and coat well. Heat remaining oil in a large over-safe skillet over medium-high heat. Add pork and brown 2 min. per side, working in batches if needed.
  2. Add remaining lime juice to pan, scraping up and blending in brown bits. Transfer pan to oven, and roast pork 8 to 10 min. Remove pan from oven, transfer pork to a plate, top with salsa and loosely cover with foil. Reduce pan juices over medium heat until slightly thickened, 2 min. To serve, spoon pan juices over pork chops, sprinkle with cilantro and squeeze juice from remaining lime over top.
