My husband is a really good cook. If he's in the kitchen I know I'll enjoy a delicious meal. The thing about his creations though is he doesn't use a recipe. He somehow manages to combine different ingredients, using just the right amount to create a dish that not only leaves me wanting more but also wanting him to recreate it again. That is where the problem comes into play. He usually can't remember what all he puts in to make it again.
So when he made this pork recipe a few weeks ago, I made him tell me what and how much he used as he was cooking. I'm glad I did because not only is this pork recipe simple, it's delicious. Just the right amount of sweetness with a touch of heat from the chili powder.
Summer is almost here, this would go perfectly on the grill with some veggies!
2 thin boneless pork chops
2 tbs breadcrumbs
2 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp chili powder
2 tbs brown sugar
1/2 tsp salt and pepper
2 tbs olive oil
In a small bowl, combine the breadcrumbs, cinnamon, chili powder, brown sugar and 1 tbs of the olive oil.
Salt and pepper the pork chops.
Cover the pork chops in the sweet heat rub. Make sure all sides are covered.
Cook in a skillet, grill pan or on the grill. If you're cooking on the oven, use the remaining
olive oil. Pour the tablespoon of olive oil into the pan, heat to medium and cook the pork chops for about 3-4 minutes on each side, depending on the thickness.
