  • “WOW!! These chops are delicious!! The lime flavor is just fabulous.Really makes this a stand-out. The meat was moist and juicy.Easy and perfect summertime fare. Thanks Bergy for a super recipe.”

  • “Holy Yumminess!!This marinade is great!!After marinating the pork chops, I transferred the marinade into a small saucepan and boiled it while the chops broiled (no BBQ grills allowed in our apartments!) at the very last minute I added a pat of butter to the thickened sauce and poured it over the cooked chops…SOOO GOOD!!!I bet it would be great on fish or shrimp as well!!”

  • “wonderful, juicy, bbq pork chops!!What a great combination of flavours in the marinade, the lime, honey and vinegar are a refreshing change!!This is a keeper Bergy and will be enjoyed time and again.”

  • “I made these this evening and it was a little too much lime for us so I didn’t add the sauce…We ate them, but they may have been better if I had made them on the grill outside instead of inside in the broiler… so I can’t really say what they would have been like, if I had grilled them like the recipe called for. Everything is better on the grill! Sorry! I should have waited til the summer for this recipe. The weather is 0 degrees so that wasn’t an option. Jelly”

  • “Excellent! For people who actually enjoy lime, this was fantastic. 30 minutes seemed like the perfect amount of time to marinate. The pork was well flavoured and tender. The lime was very prominent, as a recipe with “lime” in the title very well should be. Perfect for a hot summer day. I’ll be making this regularly. Thanks for sharing, Bergy!”

  • “I was so disappointed when I tasted this recipe. Most of the reviews were really good. I guess there is no in between. Neither my husband nor I like the lime and pork combination.”

  • “I liked these.The husband did not. I made the recipe exactly according to directions…he thought the citrus flavor was way too pronounced. (hello, it’s a *lime* pork chop!)This was easy to make and the end result was nice.I’d make them again for myself,if not the husband.Thanks!”

  • “I thought these were excellent! Very moist and flavorful.I followed MackinacBride’s suggestion and enjoyed the extra flavor the sauce provided.”

  • “I followed the instructions exactly yet we ended up with a tough, bitter porkchop?Based on the great reviews, I guess we just don’t like lime ad pork together.”

  • “This is a very good recipe while cooking you really can smell the honey, and the flavour of the lime is very distinct.Great recipe,I’ll be using this one a lot in the future.”

  • “delicious, wonderful taste, juicy, tender,the lime taste was sweet, great recipe”

  • “I tend to always cook my chops just a bit too long.This marinade is perfect, keeps them juicy even if I leave them on the grill a bit too long!Great recipe, thanks for sharing!”

  • “The lime citrus marinade was very good with the pork chops. Had a tangy flavor that was mildly sweet. The chops were very tender and juicy. Didn’t stay on the platter long so I know everyone liked them. Thank-you for sharing this recipe.”
