This quick dish was absolutely wonderful. The spice-rub forms a great crust on the top of your pork chop. The warming flavors of coriander and cumin paired really well with the garlicky sweet potatoes and lemon-scented green beans. I followed all of the side suggestions for this recipe.

Quick hint on pork. I bought a full center loin in bag on sale at our local Pick ‘n Save. The pork loin was just after $16.00 after discount. I was able to cut 14 center-cut chops and 2 small pork roasts out of this piece of meat. I’m not sure I’ll ever buy pork chops pre-cut at the store again!
