Basil Pork Chops
You gotta try these! They are so flavorful and fast! Give them a try...SERIOUSLY!

What you need:
1/4 cup packed brown sugar
1 1/2 teaspoons dried basil
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon chili powder
2 Tablespoons vegetable oil, divided
4 boneless pork loin chops (1/2 inch thick and 4 oz each)

What to do:

In a small bowl, combine the brown sugar, basil, salt, and chili powder. Gradually stir in 1 tablespoon oil until crumbly. Rub over both sides of pork chops.

In a large skillet, cook pork in remaining oil over medium heat for 7-8 minutes on each side or until juices run clear.

Yield: 4 servings
Prep/Total time: 25 minutes
