Cuban Style Pepper Crusted Grilled Pork Chops

Hey there! are you ready for something a little different?  why not try something a little spicy and full of favor, like this Cuban style grilled pork chop dinner for 2. This was made last night for dinner and  It was a such a  tasty dish.. I am not really a fan of spicy hot foods. Being a country girl  I usually  like my pork chops pan fried with gravy. I have never like food so hot and spicy that it burns my mouth the whole time I am trying to eat it, never could understand what people liked about hot and spicy food. Dated a man once who poured hot sauce over everything I cooked for him. It's so frustrating to prepare a dish with delicate flavors such as lets say eggs Benedict, just to have  someone pour hot sauce over the whole meal..This man liked he's food so  hot & spicy he would be sweating over the whole meal. ( wonder why that relationship didn't work out) 
but this dish has just enough fire to make the dish interesting and not painfully spicy  hot..

You'll need: 
4 boneless pork loin or rib cut chops. about 1 inch thick trimmed of fat.
2 tablespoons grated lime peel,and juices from 1 small lime.
1 tablespoon cumin seed
1 tablespoon cracked black pepper
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 tablespoon olive oil
1 clove garlic, finely chopped
1.  Heat gas or charcoal grill. remove excess fat from pork. In small bowl mix remaining ingredients, rub mixture evenly on both sides of pork.
2. Place pork on grill over medium heat. cover  grill; cook 8-10 minutes, turning frequently until pork is no longer pink.meat thermometer inserted in reads 145 f
