Cumin Pork

 

Main Dish

Cumin Pork

Olive oil spray

2 teaspoons ground cumin

3/4 pound boneless pork loin chops

1/2 cup frozen, diced onion

1/4 cup balsamic vinegar

1/2 cup fat-free, low-sodium chicken broth

2 teaspoons honey

Salt and freshly ground pepper

Heat a nonstick skillet just large enough to hold the pork in one layer over medium-high heat. Spray with olive oil spray. Rub the ground cumin onto both sides of the pork chops and add to the skillet along with the onion. Brown the pork for 2 minutes, turn and brown second side 2 minutes. Lower heat to medium, cover with a lid and continue to sauté pork 5 minutes. A meat thermometer should read 145 degrees. Remove meat from pan and put onto a plate.

Add the vinegar to the pan and reduce the liquid by about half while scraping up the brown bits in the bottom of the skillet. Add the broth and honey and reduce the liquid again by half, stirring to combine the ingredients. Slice the pork, sprinkle with salt and pepper to taste and serve the sauce and onions on top. Makes 2 servings.
