Sweet and Spicy Pork Chops
Ready for a tasty dish that can be quickly prepared? Well, I’m always on the hunt for more easy family dishes like this low carb chicken casserole or one-pot or skillet meals like this easy sweet and spicy pork dish to make mid-week!
This skillet meal is made with simple and fresh ingredients that tastes great, is WAAAY better than ordering out, and quite nutritious too!
Simple Pork Chop Recipe
This recipe is from Rachael Ray’s cookbooks.
I love the way she writes her recipes with guidance like “eyeball it” or “pour EVOO (extra-virgin olive oil) twice around the pan!”
Now those wing-it instructions are what REAL cooking is all about! She gives the reader the basics and encourages us to adjust the seasoning and ingredients to what we like!
Pork the Other White Meat
Pork is low in fat and calories just like chicken and turkey. In addition, pork also cooks quickly too!
Mix up your menu plan with pork! This skillet meal is a nice transition from poultry dishes that we tend to eat several times a week.
I happen to think that Rachel created this recipe to suit my tastebuds perfectly, please adjust to your preference.
For more spicy heat add an extra few slices of jalapeños. Prefer more pineapple? Go ahead and sweeten it up with more pineapple chunks!
This dish takes no time to cook and is pretty enough to share with guests!
