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.
