Vietnamese Spiced Pork Chops

These were so damn good I couldn't get enough!  They have a good kick to them too and I didn't even add more spice like I normally do.  I love lean pork chops, they are healthy, tastey, and oh so filling!  Anyways I made these the night of the blazer game as well, and even though the blazers lost I had a major win or success with these. Try 'em now!

Serves 4
Adapted from Cooking Light

The Ingredients
4 boneless lean pork chops, about 1 inch thick
2 tablespoons brown sugar
2 teaspoons paprika
2 teaspoons ground coriander
3/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon crushed red pepper
1 tablespoon ginger, minced
3 cloves garlic, minced
cooking spray

The Process
1.  Lightly score a diamond pattern on both sides of pork.

2.  In small bowl combine: brown sugar, paprika, ground coriander, salt, crushed red pepper, ginger, and garlic and mix well.

3.  Spray large skillet with cooking spray and turn to medium-high heat.

4.  Take mixture from bowl and rub evenly over pork.

5.  Add to skillet and cook each side for 5 minutes or until done.

The kitchen will smell so good once this pork hits the pan! Also some more nutrition facts.
