"Chops rubbed with a simple but flavorful spice and garlic mixture. For an even more potent result, toast and grind the spices yourself."

olive oil, divided
boneless pork loin chops
ground black pepper to taste
I love the combination of the spices the only thing I did different was omited the salt and marinated the chops overnight and then seasoned them before cooking; as the salt tends to draw out the moisture if you salt them overnight and they become dry.
I'm giving this a three b/c I'm sure it is a very good recipe for those who like Coriander. I had never tried Coriander before and I now know that I absolutely can't handle it. It is very pungent!!! Thank you for the recipe...I'm sure it's great for people who like this spice, just not for me.
I knew I would love these chops, I just love coriander and cumin! I was concerned it would be too flavourful for my children...but they LOVED it too! I prepared them exactly as directed, even though I am leary of pan frying meat. Next time I may try it on the bbq. I wonder how this would work on a tenderloin...maybe I'll try that too! Thanks Darla!
One of the best pork chop recipes I have tried. The taste grabbed my attention and the simplicity and time involved made it a winner. I made curried potatoes on the side and went to bed happy. Thanks for the recipe...great job.
I had a pork loin and not chops, so I rubbed the ingredients on the loin, substituting onion powder for garlic since I was out of garlic. I baked it in a covered roaster with some water and 3 beef bouillion cubes in the bottom to make gravy. It was wonderful!
This also works really well on the BBQ.
I added a half of a dried chipotle pepper to this and ground all the spices and garlic in amortar and pestle. Tasted GREAT!!
Fantastic!! The best recipie that I have tried on this website. Thanks.
This smelled absolutely divine while I was making it. I didn't make a paste by adding the oil to the spice mix, though. Rather, I just made a dry spice rub, and added 1 tsp. garam masala to the mix, then added the extra oil to the pan. Unfortunately, my family was late for dinner, so I had to keep these on warm stand-by, and the chops dried out. I served them with mashed potatoes seasoned with yellow curry powder, garlic powder and a touch of red pepper flakes, and a side of steamed cauliflower. It made a nice pseudo-Indian meal.
