Bahama Breeze Guava Glazed Double Bone Pork chops Recipe
Here is the recipe for Bahama Breeze Guava Glazed Double Bone Pork Chops Recipe.
It is absolutely delicious. The pork chops marinade in a Jamaican mix the day before, and are glazed with a guava glaze while cooking. When you go to the restaurant this is served with a mango salsa and garlic mashed potatoes. It is so delicious. Plan on not having any leftovers when you make this- I didn't.
Bahama Breeze is a popular Caribbean restaurant, and they have several locations nationwide. When you go in the restaurant they play Caribbean music and serve frozen drinks like you would get in the Caribbean. It is a pretty popular place to be, and eat at. Make this at home for a fraction of the cost. Play some tropical music, and get out the blender for some frozen drinks and it will be like you are there in the restaurant. Enjoy!

Then add 2 cups of your favorite BBQ sauce, and your blackening seasoning. Mix till thorough. Place in fridge till ready.

- When ready to cook- Lets get out our grill and get it heated. Take out your chops and place on the grill. Discard the marinade in the bag. We are going to grill these pork chops. We want to baste these chops with the guava glaze while we are cooking, so get out your guava glaze along with a basting brush. Cook till done, flipping on each side and making sure not to burn. It should be about 25 minutes. Set aside and keep warm.
