Glazed Chops With Creamy Broccoli Rice

READY IN: 35mins




  • In a bowl combine the brown sugar and spices (salt, pepper, cayenne, paprika and garlic powder).
  • Rub the brown sugar/spice mix all over both sides of the each chop. Use all of the spice mix.
  • Heat olive oil in a skillet over medium/high heat. Add the pork chops. Cook the chops in olive oil over medium heat for about 7 minutes on each side or until they are nicely browned and cooked through.
  • For the broccoli rice cook the rice according to package directions. Set aside.
  • Cook broccoli in the vegetable broth for about 10 minutes or until very tender. Mash or puree the broccoli, adding milk to get a smooth, creamy consistency. Pour over the cooked rice and stir to combine.
  • In a large non-stick skillet, melt the butter and add the garlic. Sauté over low heat until the garlic is very fragrant, about 3-5 minutes. Add the creamy rice mixture and stir until butter and garlic are incorporated. Season with salt and pepper.
