Moroccan Spice-Rubbed Pork Chops

I get the best pork chops from the local butcher and I've been trying to "spice" them up a bit lately.  I really love North African flavors.  This was really delicious and I will make it again.

Moroccan Spice-Rubbed Pork Chops
adapted from the South Beach Diet

2 cloves garlic, minced
1 tsp olive oil
1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
1/2 tsp ground coriander
1/2 tsp ground cumin
1/2 tsp paprika
4 pork chops, bone in
1/4 tsp salt
freshly ground black pepper to taste

In a small bowl, combine garlic, oil, cinnamon, coriander, cumin and paprika to form a rough paste.  Press spice mixture onto both sides of each pork chop.  Lightly coat grill or grill pan with cooking spray and heat to medium-high.  Grill pork until there is no trace of pink near the bone, about 6-8 minutes per side.  Sprinkle with salt and pepper to taste.
