Chops w/Garlic Pepper Rub

  • 4 loin pork chops
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon cracked peppercorns
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1 Tablespoon olive oil
  • Salt
  1. On a cutting board sprinkle salt on minced garlic. With the side of a chef’s knife, mash salt into minced garlic to make a paste.
  2. Place garlic paste in a small bowl and add pepper and oregano.
  3. Spread garlic pepper rub over one side of chops.
  4. Heat a large, heavy skillet over medium-high heat. Add oil, and when hot, add chops, rub- side down; seasoning tops with salt. Pan-fry until nicely browned, then turn over and brown other side.
  5. Chops are done when meat is fairly firm when pressed and there are no red juices. Serve immediately.

Hey you!

I wanted to let you know I've changed my recipe stash URL, yet again... :D

I've decided to go back to the whole foods approach. I like it better and I'm more likely to stick with it.

Anyways, just wanted to let you know! :D

Come on in for a nice cup of coffee and a chat about my weight loss journey as well as all the healthy recipes I have found, including WW points and/or nutritional information if available. I am eating a vegetarian diet and concentrating on getting healthy and hopefully weight loss will follow. Thank to all my readers for their ongoing support.
