I found this recipe in our local paper. It's a little spicy but we found it delicious!

Enjoyed this a lot. Our pork came to us as thick chops, and because one of us had to leave, we cooked one chop with the rub in a cast-iron skillet to get it done sooner -- that one was the best. The rest were roasted as instructed. Both ways, delicious; the pan fried one was juicier. Raves for the onions and peppers! Made for Zaar World Tour 5.
