You are What You Eat

If the saying “you are what you eat” was true, I would be a chicken. Considering I make chicken at least three times a week, and I for a while I showed no signs of slowing down. I got to the point this semester though, where I just couldn’t eat another piece of chicken no matter how it was prepared. I just never thought the day would come, but it came and it was not easy.

So, I decided to turn to something different. I picked up some pork chops and went with it. This is a really simple rub that you mix up and then just put on your pork chops. It isn’t too expensive and really works for a college student that is tired of chicken. I will be bringing this with me when I move home to cook without a doubt.


Shopping List:

4 Pork Chops 
1/2 tsp Garlic Powder 
1/2 tsp Paprika 
1/4 cup Brown Sugar 
1/2 Salt 
1/2 tsp Pepper 


How to:

1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.

2. Mix all of the spices together in a small bowl.

3. Rub the spice mix on the pork chops, use all of the mixture.

4. Heat oil in a pan, and once it is heated put the pork chops in the pan to brown them. Cook the cops for about 5 minutes on each side (10 minutes total)

5. Transfer the chops to a baking pan lined with foil and place the chops in the oven for another 5 minutes.

6. Remove them from the oven, and make sure to drag them around in the juices is created from cooking.
