Pork Chops Adobado


  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 3 to 5 large garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano or 1 tablespoon fresh
  • 1 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1 tablespoon paprika
  • 1 teaspoon salt, or to taste
  • 1/2 teaspoon freshly ground pepper, or to taste
  • 4 boneless pork chops, about an inch thick


  1. If you're grilling the chops, heat grill as necessary.
  2. In a small skillet over low heat, combine olive oil, garlic and oregano. Heat for 2 minutes or until they become aromatic. Stir in cumin, paprika, salt and pepper. Remove from heat.
  3. Place the pork chops in a wide pan and pour the seasoned oil over them. Rub the mixture into the pork and let it stand at least 30 minutes, or refrigerate all day or overnight.
  4. Broil or grill about 5 minutes per side, or until pork is done to desired taste.
  5. Serve with yellow rice and sliced tomatoes.

Serves 4.
