Bolivian Spiced Pork Chops

“This is great rub for pork chops! Be prepared for some real spice if you use the full 1/2 TBL of red pepper, I usually cut it back to about 1/2 tsp instead. This originally appeared in a South Beach Diet cookbook and is one of our favorites!”

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350.
  2. In a large Ziplock bag combine cumin, cardamom, coriander, red pepper, lemon peel, salt, and pepper.
  3. Place pork chops in bag one at a time and rub spices evenly over both sides.
  4. Heat a skillet to medium-high heat.
  5. Add the oil and sear the chops on both sides.
  6. After they brown, put them on a half-sheet pan and finish them in the oven to desired tenderness. For thick chops, plan on 45 min to 1 hour. Cover with foil if tops seem to be getting too done.
