Dry Rubbed Pork Chops and Broccoli and Cheese Almondine

Makes 4 servings Active Prep Time: 30 minutes  Bake Time: 30 – 45 minutes

“The rub on these pork chops is delicious and the Almondine is actually my husband’s recipe from when he was a kid.  This dinner rocks!”

4 – 6 pork chops – your choice (the thicker they are, the longer they will take to cook)

4 tablespoons brown sugar

1 teaspoon chili powder

1 teaspoon garlic powder

1/2 teaspoon salt


3 cups cooked rice

1 head broccoli – stems removed and tops steamed

1/4 cup butter

1/2 teaspoon salt

1 cup Cheddar cheese

1 cup almond slivers

1)  Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

2)  In a small bowl, combine brown sugar, chili powder, garlic powder and salt.

3)  Rub mixture on both sides of pork chops.

4)  Place chops flat in a baking dish and bake at 35-40 minutes or until no longer pink.

Meanwhile, chop steamed broccoli heads.  Combine rice (while still warm) with broccoli, butter, salt, cheese and almond slivers.  Heat in microwave if the rice is not still warm enough to melt the butter and cheese.

*If you have a rice cooker, steam broccoli over rice while it is cooking.*
