  • Active Time 10m
  • Total Time 35m


Fire up the grill and get ready for some serious flavor! This pork Porterhouse chop is topped with butter blended with fresh cilantro and chipotle peppers.


  • 4 Porterhouse (bone-in loin) pork chops, about 1-inch thick
  • 2 teaspoons paprika
  • Salt and pepper, to taste
  • Olive oil, for brushing grill
  • Corn on the Cob:
  • 4 pieces corn, shucked
  • 2 teaspoons olive oil
  • Chipotle-Herb Butter:
  • 4 tablespoons butter, unsalted, at room temperature
  • 2 tablespoons cilantro, chopped
  • 1 tablespoon chipotle chile* in adobo sauce, chopped
  • 1 teaspoon lime juice, fresh


Preheat grill over medium high heat and brush with olive oil. Sprinkle paprika, salt and pepper on both sides of the chops.

Grill the pork for 8-9 minutes, turning once halfway through, until cooked to 145 degrees F. Remove the pork from the grill, tent it with foil and let it rest for 3 minutes.

Brush the corn with olive oil and place on the grill. Grill the corn for a few minutes on each side, turning regularly until it is charred. Remove from grill and set aside.

In a food processor, combine softened butter, cilantro, chipotle pepper and freshly squeezed lime juice. Pulse for 1 minute until it’s fully combined.

Dish up 1 tablespoon of the compound butter on top of each piece of pork, and serve alongside a piece of corn on the cob.

*You can find chipotle pepper in adobo sauce canned in the ethnic or Latin section of most major supermarkets.
