Decent little rub.  I doubled the spices and grilled the chops - no oil needed.  Super easy to throw together on a busy work night.

This was so easy, fast, and perfect for two! The chops didn't take long to cook, and were very tender. Served with homemade applesauce, sweet potatoes and spinach. Will definitely make again.

Found the pork a bit bland, the green beans were very easy and tasty, but overall the meal was forgettable. Maybe letting the pork marinate a bit would help the flavour.

Simple, straightforward, quick, no out-of-the-ordinary ingredients required. Doubled to serve four. Grilled chops on bbq and let rest 15min. Served with recommended lemon green beans, very good and recommended potato wedges, using half sweet potato/half white.

Not too impressed with this recipe - not enough flavor in either the sweet potatoes or the pork. Next time I would marinate for a while, and step up the seasoning

The rub was very flavorful, and the pork was tender, but overall the dish was one-note -- just not very interesting. The kids ate it, but they love pork in almost any form... I served with baked sweet potatoes and beautiful blackberries.

This was quick and easy but the spices were a little too overpowering for me.
