    olive oil
  • 2   tablespoons 
    orange juice
  • 2   tablespoons 
    snipped fresh cilantro
  • 1   tablespoon 
    red wine vinegar or cider vinegar
  • 2   teaspoons 
    hot chili powder
  • 1   teaspoon 
    ground cumin
  • 1   teaspoon 
    dried oregano, crushed
  • 1/2  teaspoon 
    salt
  • 1/4  teaspoon 
    ground red pepper (optional)
  • 1/4  teaspoon 
    ground cinnamon
  • 3   
    cloves garlic, minced
Directions
1.
Trim fat from chops. Place chops in a plastic bag set in a shallow dish. For marinade, in a small bowl combine brown sugar, oil, orange juice, cilantro, vinegar, chili powder, cumin, oregano, salt, red pepper (if desired), cinnamon, and garlic. Pour over chops; seal bag. Marinate in the refrigerator for 2 hours to 24 hours, turning occasionally.
2.
Drain chops, discarding marinade. For a charcoal grill, grill chops on the rack of an uncovered grill directly over medium coals for 12 to 15 minutes or until chops are done (160 degrees F), turning once halfway through grilling. (For a gas grill, preheat grill. Reduce heat to medium. Place chops on grill rack over heat. Cover and grill as above.) Makes 6 servings.
