Expert Tips

To broil pork chops, place on broiler pan; broil 4 to 6 inches from heat using times above as a guide, turning once and brushing with reserved marinade.

Cuban-style marinades often combine a citrus juice with rum.

Distilled from fermented sugarcane juice, rum ranges from light-colored and mild-flavored to dark and deep. Cuban rum is dark, rich and full-flavored. Use dark rum to give these chops authentic flavor.

Black beans and rice are perfect with this Caribbean-inspired recipe. Wedges of cool, fresh papaya and mango make a delicious dessert.
