Recipe

Lately I have cooking a lot of pork chops on the grill and under the broiler. After weeks of chicken breasts and thighs, it's a nice alternative that is still lean and relatively low in calories. When I cook pork chops, I usually like to stick to a simple spice rub and either cook them quickly on the grill or under the broiler so the outside gets crispy and the inside stays moist. This spice rub was inspired by the Southwest with paprika, garlic, cinnamon, and ginger.
