MAKE THE MARINATE

  1. In a large shallow dish mix the parsley, cilantro, garlic, sherry, olive oil, salt and pepper. Add the pork chops and toss to thoroughly coat. Poke with a fork the chops and press the herbs all over the chops. Let it marinate for 30 minutes turning occasionally.

  2. Drizzle the mojo on the middle of each plate. Place the pork chop over it and drizzle more mojo over the chops if desired.
