Recipe Swap: Spiced Pork Chops

Here’s another family favorite recipe that I made this week. My whole family LOVES these pork chops and will rarely let me fix them any other way! Since I have 3 picky eaters (hubby being one of them) this says a lot about a recipe! So, here you go:

Spiced Pork Chops

4 pork chops
1 teaspoon paprika
½ teaspoon oregano
1 teaspoon cumin
1 teaspoon garlic powder
½ teaspoon salt
¼ teaspoon fennel seeds – crushed
1/8 teaspoon cayenne pepper
1 tablespoon olive oil
½ tablespoon butter
½ cup chicken broth

Mix all spices together and evenly sprinkle half over the top of the pork chops.

In a skillet, over medium-high heat, heat olive oil. Placed spiced side or pork chops down in the hot skillet. Cook about 3-5 minutes on one side till browned, but no blackened (turn down the heat if they are cooking too fast).

While chops are cooking on the first side, sprinkle remaining spice mixture on the uncooked side.

Flip them over once, finish cooking.

Remove chops from skillet and keep warm. Add butter to skillet and whisk browned bits with a wire whisk.

Turn the heat up a little, add chicken broth and keep whisking till the sauce reduces to about half. Serve the chops with the sauce on top.

FYI: Some of the spices, if you have never bought them, are a little pricy, but last a long time.
