I thought these pork chops sounded yummy when I first read the recipe and so I decided to make them tonight. I started with 2 boneless center-cut pork loin chops which I rubbed on both sides with a flavorful spice rub. The recipe called for grilling these, but since it was a cold, gray day in the Dallas area, I decided to just cook them under the broiler and I must say it worked out just fine.
I served the pork chops with stove-top barbecue beans and homemade coleslaw.
