This was very tasty! We had the pork chops with Vegetable Korma and a salad with Sesame Ginger dressing. My husband and I give it 4 stars. It would've rated a five except that it was just a little too salty. Next time I make this recipe, I'll try using only half a teaspoon of salt.

I followed this recipe exactly, right down to the white pepper. I know I'm in the minority here but I just did not care for this recipe at all. I really did not like the taste of this rub, and believe me, I like my spice. Also, the chops were very dry. Even with thinner chops, I still don't care for the taste of the rub. Would not make again.
