Pork chops tend to have a bad reputation when it comes to meat. But a diet that isn’t varied can become boring quick. If you enjoy pork chops now and then, try this dish with some added spice.
1/2 cup Caribbean jerk spice
4 six-ounce thin pork chops
4 sweet potatoes (baked)
Preheat oven to 350 degrees
Rinse clean and poke potatoes with fork
Spray pan and bake in oven for one hour.
While sweet potatoes are cooking, prepare pork chops. To get a nice grilled flavor, sear on each side in a hot skillet for 1 minute on each side, before placing in oven.
Spray pan with Pam
Coat pork chops with Caribbean jerk spice and bake for 20 minutes in 350 degree oven.
Pork chops are the super meat of protein, one serving gives you almost all the protein you need for the day. High in omega 3 and omega 6 fatty acids. Choose lean varieties and bake or grill. Remember portion control is important, eat only one chop. Sweet potatoes are high in fiber, vitamins A and C, these golden beauties are nutrient rich. Low fat and naturally sweet.
