I found this Weight Watchers Cuban Pork Chops on a meeting hand outback in 2013, and it is still a family favorite all these years later! Pork chops are one of my favorite lean proteins, and they also give me a break from chicken.

These Weight Watchers Pork Chops are also on WW website -> here. I did mine a bit differently, doubled the marinade in the bag, and also added another seasoning. as well. I must say it’s one of those few dishes I first worried the kids wouldn’t eat, but they loved it and even had seconds!!
WHAT IS Weight Watchers?
When starting a new weight loss program or diet change, consult a doctor or physician about personal health concerns. It is a good idea to have blood sugar levels, blood pressure, and hormones checked at a physical before and during being on the WW program.
New to Weight Watchers?? Also known as WW, a weight loss program uses points assigned to food to track and lose weight. When you sign up, you take an assessment that will assign you a point value to eat daily and a weekly allowance. You can carry over 4 points from the day into your weekly budget, which is handy when you need more points.
I have been on Weight Watchers since 2011. They have had Points Plus Value, WW Smartpoints, Blue Plan, Green Plan, Purple Plan, WW Personal Points, and now Weight Watchers Points. The new Weight Watchers Simplified plan is the new program launched in November 2022, similar to previous plans like WW Smartpoints, with some color plans. ( You can see the Weight Watchers Zero Point Foods 2023 -> here)
No matter the WW plan, they work to help you learn healthy eating habits. I have hit lifetime goal weight several times but stopped operating the plan and tracking, so the weight does creep back on.
Right now, you can head on over -> here and sign up for Weight Watchers to get 6 months of WW for free!

Now a good knife is a must-have in any kitchen! I picked up this Aicok Knife (HERE)for under $10, but it keeps going out of stock often on Amazon due to how awesome it is. There are a lot of other top-rated knives on Amazon at a great prices. I am not the best at picking out Knives, so when I can read reviews to find a good quality knife, it’s a win for me!
In a bowl, combine the topping ingredients and allow it to rest for about 30 minutes.
In a Gallon Ziploc Bag, throw in all your marinade ingredients without the pork chops. (I placed mine in the fridge while the meat was marinating)
Either shake or squish the bag to mix the marinade ingredients before putting the pork chops in the bag.
Allow the pork to marinate for however long you want. Mine was about 45 minutes, but you could do an overnight marinate.
Either oil or grease your pan or grill to warm up to cook your pork chops.
Allow the pork chops to cook and flip them to ensure they cook properly. Use a meat thermometer to ensure they are at least 145 degrees.
Plate and place marinated onions on the pork chops for more flavor.
Serve with potatoes or a salad.
