Spring Cleaning Never Tasted So Good: Quick Cuban Sunday Supper

In honor of the spring cleaning season, this weekend I opened my freezer and fished out some odds and ends I stashed away this winter. I was surprised that I was able to put together a quick and delicious Cuban dinner from just a few key ingredients! I found a tub of  Black Beans left over from Michael and Tommy’s October visit and a container of sour orange juice I salvaged from my mom’s yard in Florida (I picked them up over Christmas). With just those two ingredients, I was able to put together a menu of Black Beans and Rice, Grapefruit and Avocado Salad and Cuban Sour Orange Marinated Pork Chops.  All I needed at the store was 2 pork chops, lettuce, an avocado, a grapefruit and an onion to make a quick, festive Cuban Sunday supper!  Spring Cleaning never looked – or tasted – so good!

Cuban Sour Orange Marinade:

  • 1 cup sour orange juice
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon cummin
  • 5 garlic cloves, chopped
  • salt & pepper

Assembly: Combine all the marinade ingredients in a ziplock bag. Add two bone-in thick cut pork chops. Marinate for about 6 hours or over night. Grill and enjoy!
