Recipe recommendation: Glazed Pork Chops

October 24, 2011 at 1:54 pm Leave a comment

I’ve been trying to do a better job of meal planning lately, in an effort to both a) save money and b) get more organized.  I’ve also been attempting (mostly unsuccessfully) to break my children out of their food ruts, so I’ve been looking for more recipes.

Pinterest has been a great resource for finding and collecting new recipes.  (In case you haven’t been there, Pinterest is a virtual bulletin board where you can “pin” anything that strikes your fancy.  Great place for keeping craft ideas, activities for kids, and recipes.  Word of warning: it’s a horribly addictive time-suck.)

Made these glazed pork chops last night.  The original recipe is from the blog Budget Bytes.  The blogger not only posts recipes, she also posts the cost breakdown for each recipe.

The original post called for stovetop prep of the pork chops, but we grilled them.  They turned out somewhat spicy but quite tasty.  Next time I’ll probably cut the cayenne back to 1/4 tsp.

Here you go:

Make a rub by combining the following:

  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1/2 tsp cayenne pepper
  • 1/2 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/2 tsp paprika
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp black pepper

Rub on pork chops and grill.  Alternately, visit the Budget Bytes blog to see how she cooked them.  I served with rice and green beans.  Good stuff!
