Spice-Rubbed Pork Chops

7:20 AM

Tonight for dinner we had these healthy broiled pork chops. I found this simple recipe on a Weight Watchers message board a while back and have been meaning to make it since (WW is a great program, by the way!) I have a few recipes very similar to this dish, just a different combo of spices and ingredients in each. I love spice-rubbed meats that are grilled or broiled, but this one didn't score too high for me - it was just mediocre. I think the ingredients below are a great start for a potentially killer dish, but it is just lacking that something. I will definitely try this dish again (I love the idea of using the Worcestershire), but I will try changing it up to make it a little better.

Spice-Rubbed Pork Chops
Serves 4

1 1/2 teaspoons chili powder
1 tablespoon unpacked brown sugar
2 teaspoons ground cumin
1 teaspoon garlic powder
1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
2 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
20 ounces lean boneless pork chops (four 1/2- inch thick chops)

1. Preheat broiler and coat broiler pan with cooking spray.

2. In a small bowl, combine chili powder, sugar, cumin, garlic powder, and salt. Add worcestershire sauce and stir until a paste forms. Rub paste onto both sides of the pork chop, then place on the prepared pan and broil 4 minutes on each side until the inside is no longer pink.
