    Serves 4
    Time required 75 minutes
    Difficulty level 2
    Cost of ingredients 7 USD

  • 4 pork steaks/chops, about 2 inches thick
  • 1 large lemon, juiced
  • ½ cup (125ml) water
  • ¼ cup (60ml) onion, finely chopped
  • 2 teaspoons (10ml) brown sugar, packed
  • 2 teaspoons (10ml) oil
  • ½ teaspoon (2ml) salt
  • ½ teaspoon (2ml) allspice
  • ½ teaspoon (2ml) cinnamon
  • ½ teaspoon (2ml) cayenne pepper (optional for heat)
  • ½ teaspoon (2ml) thyme, dried
  • ¼  teaspoon (1ml) black pepper

Mix herbs and spices together with lemon juice, water and oil. Whisk well and pour over steaks, making sure to reserve about a quarter of marinade for basting. Rub all over the meat and allow to marinate for at least 1 hour. If you’d like a stronger flavor marinate a few hours to over night.

Heat up the grill or the broiler. If using a grill, make sure to oil the grate before cooking. Place the steaks on the grill and cover, turning at least once and basting with reserved marinade. Do the same in the oven with the broiler on. Cook until juices are clear and meat is white in the middle or internal temperature reaches  160F (70C).

Serve with rice and salad.
