I love the spices that Moroccan food uses.  For the most part the spices are minimal, but each pack a punch of savory, unique flavors.

Serves 4

time: about 45 minutes

Ingredients:

4 pork chops

1/2 teaspoon coriander

1/2 teaspoon cumin

1/2 salt

1 bell pepper (red or orange) sliced into large strips

3 tablespoons olive oil

1/2 cup sliced almonds

2 garlic cloves

1/4 teaspoon brown sugar

1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper

coconut oil, for pan

fresh green beans, stems removed

 

Directions:

  1. Combine coriander, cumin, salt, half of the fresh bell pepper, olive oil, almonds and garlic cloves to a food processor; process until smooth.
  2. Place the ground mixture into a zip lock bag or large container with a lid.
  3. Coat the pork chops with the sauce mixture.
  4. After your skillet is hot, add a bit of coconut oil (or any high-heat oil).  Reduce the heat to medium-high and then add each pork chop.  Sear each side in the hot pan, then reduce the heat to medium-low and allow to cook until the pork chops are cooked through (flip occasionally).
  5. Add the fresh green beans and the other half of bell peppers to the sauce mixture left in the bag, coating evenly.  Cook in a skillet for about 5 minutes until they are soft but still crunchy.
  6. Serve hot!
