Budget Grilled Cuban Pork Chops

Cuban Rub

2 tablespoons grated lime peel
1 tablespoon cumin seed
1 tablespoon cracked black pepper
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 tablespoons olive or vegetable oil
1 clove garlic, finely chopped

Pork Chops
4 boneless pork loin or rib chops, about 1 inch thick (about 2 pounds)

Heat coals or gas grill for direct heat. Remove excess fat from pork. In small bowl, mix all Cuban Rub ingredients; rub evenly on both sides of pork.
