Welcome to Freezer Food Friday. Today I have a main dish recipe that can be prepared ahead and frozen to be used later. Please share a recipe on your blog and link it below using Mr Linky ( if Mr Link is misbehaving… leave a link in the comments.
Sorry there was no meme last Friday, I was on vacation with the family and wound up in the hospital. Ugh!
There are several more freezer recipes at the pork chop link.. click on the title to go to the article.
Makes 8 to 12 servings
12 pork loin chops, each about 1 inch thick
4 1/2 cups bottled margarita mix
6 tablespoons minced garlic
5 teaspoons salt
3 teaspoons black pepper
1. Divide the pork chops between two or three heavy-duty freezer bags. Pour the margarita mix into each bag and then add the garlic, salt and pepper. Seal the bags; massage a bit to mix the marinade. Freeze. Transport in a cooler and, if still frozen upon reaching your destination, place back in the freezer until a day before they are needed. If the pork does not make the trip frozen, refrigerate immediately and use within a day or two.
2. To prepare, grill over a medium fire until an instant-read thermometer inserted into the thickest part of a chop reads 160 degrees. To prepare inside, arrange chops on a greased broiler pan. Broil chops under high heat 5 inches from the heat source, turning frequently, for 14 to 18 minutes, or until an instant-read thermometer inserted into the thickest part of the chop reads 160 degrees.
