I am very confident with cooking chicken and fairly confident with beef. Pork, on the other hand, is a meat I’m still working on knowing how to cook better. I ran across this recipe from Cooking Light that I’ve done a few times that is quick and produces great results. Thought I’d share!
Spice-rubbed Pork Chops
Prep time: 5 minutes
Cook time: 8 minutes
2 (4-ounce) boneless pork loin chops (about 3/4 inch thick)
1/8 teaspoon garlic salt
1/4 teaspoon ground coriander
1/4 teaspoon ground cumin
1/4 teaspoon brown sugar
1-1/2 teaspoons olive oil
1. Heat a nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Sprinkle pork with 1/8 teaspoon garlic salt. Combine coriander, cumin, and sugar in a shallow bowl. Sprinkle spice mixture over 1 side of pork (I usually do both sides).
2. Add oil to pan, swirl to coat. Add pork to pan, spice side down. Cook 2 minutes, or until browned. Turn pork over, and cook 4 more minutes, or until done.
