Saucy Chops

Chocolate and pork chops?? Yes, please!! This had the makings of a fancy meal that I could throw together pretty quickly... LOVE IT!! The kids also ate it up, so that is a true bonus. What a great savory meal any day of the week!

Saucy Chops
(recipe found in Taste of Home Healthy Cooking)

4 bone in pork loin chops
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon pepper
1 tablespoon canola oil
3/4 cup strong brewed coffee
2 tablespoons steak sauce
1 tablespoon molasses
1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
1/4 teaspoon dried thyme
1 ounce semisweet chocolate, chopped

Sprinkle pork shops with salt and pepper. In a large nonstick skillet, cook chops in oil over medium heat for 4-6 minutes on each side or until a thermometer reads 160. Remove and keep warm. Add the coffee, steak sauce, molasses, garlic powder and thyme to the pan. Bring to a boil; cook until liquid is reduced by half. Whisk in chocolate until melted. Return pork chops to pan; heat through.

Serves: 4
Points: 7 points per chop
