Absolutely fantastic. Made it with coconut rice as another reviewer suggested. I plan to try the rub with catfish later this week!

Quick & easy rub. Grilled chops on the George Foreman. Served with white rice and CL's grilled pineapple salsa (Mar '10). Attractive presentation and very tasty.

With so many 5 stars I thought this must be a winner ... it went wrong for me on so many levels that I wouldn't even attempt to try it again :(

LOVED THIS RECIPE. The flavors were outstanding. On the downside, I have discovered that I do not like pork, so I will be trying this spice rub on chicken. I also added about 1 t. of turmeric too, to the rub, for a little different kick!

Amazing. My pork chops were really thick so they took way longer to cook, but the taste of the rub was fantastic! I made coconut rice and peas and it all was great. I would have loved if they had a sauce recipe to go along with the rub recipe since the rice was a bit dry.

This is ouuuutstanding! Absolutely love it and have made it at least 3 times per month since discovering it. The flavors are excellent and come together to quickly! Great weeknight meal served with steamed rice and a veggie. Also add a splash of soy sauce a squeeze a lime into the pan for extra flavor at the end as other reviewers have suggested.

Meh. It tasted fine but wasn't worth the effort of making up the rub. We've had better pork dishes from CL that we'll stick with instead.

This recipe was so easy to make. i marinated the porks for 15 mins before cooking it. i allowed the porks to carmelized each side and it was so good! had it with rice and green beans.

This was so easy, quick and tasy! I didn't have any ginger but thought it still tasted great. Can't wait to try this rub again with ginger next time, and maybe even on chicken! I would absolutely recommend this recipe!

The flavors were wonderful. I truly enjoed the chops. Followed recipe exactly. Marinated overnight. Chops formed a wonderful crust and gave off a great aroma. The aroma called my husband to the kitchen. This is definitely a keeper.

I'm not sure why this isn't 5 stars for all - but this recipe rocked. It was quick, easy and we loved it. The rub doesn't even have to be on for long to get outstanding flavor in this usually blase cut of meat. We served with a compsed Vietnamese inspired salad (think: bhan mi veggies) and some sticky rice. It was healthy, in our calorie range (450 ish with the salad and rice per person) and very satisfying - which is what I'm always looking for in our light meals. I suggest the pan be hot (and use a seasoned cast iron if you have it) - and really pay attention to your thickness on the chops - less than 1/2" thick only needs about 3 min per side. Superb!
