A Dish That Goes With Chardonnay… and Zinfandel?!?

Sauvignon Blanc or Chardonnay would be solid wine companions to this dish, which serves 4. Feeling adventurous? Try it with Zinfandel.



* 1/3 cup orange marmalade

* 1 jalapeno pepper, seeded and finely chopped

* 2 tablespoons lime juice

* 1 teaspoon grated fresh ginger root

* 4 (8-oz.) bone-in pork loin chops

* 4 teaspoons minced fresh cilantro leaves

2. Coat grill rack with nonstick cooking spray before starting the grill. Grill pork chops, covered, over medium heat for 6-7 minutes on each side or until juices run clear.

3. During the last 5 minutes of grilling, brush the pork chops with glaze.

4. Sprinkle the chops with cilantro and serve with lime wedges.
