This is a favorite weight watchers meal of mine. I love grilling and I love pork chops so how could it not be one of my favorites?!? The rub is easy to throw together and definitely gives the chops great flavor... I paired this with weight watchers Broccoli with Cheese Sauce for a great figure friendly meal!
Chili Rubbed Pork Chops
(recipe found at http://www.weightwatchers.com/)
2 teaspoons chili powder
1 1/2 teaspoons packed light brown sugar
1 teaspoon ground cumin
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper
4 (5 ounces) each pork chops
In a small bowl, combine chili powder, brown sugar, cumin, cinnamon, salt and pepper. Rub spice mixture on both sides of pork chops. Place chops on a plate, cover and refrigerated for at least 1 hour or up to 24 hours.
Coat grill rack or a large grill pan with cooking spray; heat grill or set pan over medium heat. Grill chops for 3 minutes, then turn and continue cooking until grill marks appear and chops are firm, about 4 minutes more. Transfer to a serving plate or cutting board; let stand 5 minutes before serving.
Points: 5 per pork chop
