READY IN: 40mins
Recipe by Ames0325

I couldn't find quite what I was looking for so I combined a couple of recipes together and made these pork chops for company the other night. The almonds make a wonderful brown crispy crust that was refreshingly different an delicious. I rarely measure when i cook so the amounts are approximate.

Words of warning.............extremely delicious! Only thing I need to say is, "don't grind your almonds too much." You don't want to end up with almond meal. Served with rice and broccoli, for a delightful meal. Thnx for sharing your recipe, Illinai. Made for PAC Spring 2010. You've been adopted!
