Cumin-Chile Pork Chops

Printed from Jenn's Food Journey, adapted from Food Network Magazine

1 teaspoon ground cumin
1 large jalapeno, stem and seeds removed and roughly chopped
1 garlic clove, quartered
1 Tablespoon vegetable oil
1 Tablespoon brown sugar
2 teaspoons soy sauce
1/4 teaspoon Chinese Five Spice
3/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper
drop of sesame oil
3-4 pork chops (I used bone-in pork chops)

Add all of the ingredients, except the pork, into a food processor and pulse until smooth. Place the pork in a shallow dish or resealable plastic bag and pour marinade over. Cover/seal and place in refrigerator for 2-4 hours.

Preheat grill to 375 degrees F. Clean and oil grill grates. Place the pork over direct heat and grill 4-6 minutes per side or until the pork reaches an internal temperature of 145 degree F. Remove from grill and allow to rest for 5 minutes before serving. Enjoy!
