Taste and Create was started as a food event by Nicole from For the Love of Food.  The whole purpose of Taste and Create was, and has been, and continues to be to create a community of bloggers who test each others’ recipes and share links. The participants of the event are paired together and try a new recipe from one another’s blog.

My partner this month is MIN from BAD GIRLS KITCHEN.  I had some juicy looking pork chops I just bought so decided on Min’s GRILLED CITRUS PORK CHOPS. MIN WAS RIGHT! Try this marinade, you won’t be sorry! Just don’t overcook your pork, or you will be sorry!

Citrus Marinade

Juice of 4 oranges (just over 1 cup)
Juice of 2 limes (about 1/4 cup)
4 cloves garlic, minced
1 teaspoon orange zest
2 teaspoons dried oregano
1 teaspoon cumin seeds
1 tablespoon red wine vinegar
freshly ground pepper
kosher salt

  • Combine all ingredients in a large plastic bag. Add pork, seal and refrigerate for several hours, turning bag about every half hour.
  • Heat grill, remove pork from marinade and grill until pork is done, being sure not to overcook it.
