Lemongrass Grilled Pork Chops

Adapted from Viet World Kitchen



About 6 hours before you're going to grill your chops, place pork chops in a large plastic zipper bag. Add the remaining ingredients to a food processor and process until well-chopped and combined. Pour the mixture over chops and coat well. Seal bag and refrigerate for about 5 hours.

After 5 hours, remove pork chops from refrigerator and allow them to come to room temperature before grilling.

Heat grill to medium-high. Grill chops about 4-6 minutes per side or until nice grill marks are achieved and pork is cooked to your liking (the USDA now says (as of 2011) that it is safe to eat pork slightly pink, at a temp of 145 degrees), being careful not to dry out. Pull the chops off the grill and allow them to rest 5-10 minutes before serving. Serve with lime wedges.
