Sweet and Spicy Pork Chops

   With Summer on my mind I am so looking forward to using our outdoor grill! We love grilling during spring and summer. I especially love it because it's the time of year my Hubby cooks for us! He can make some mean hamburgers and steaks. He always grills them perfectly!

   So with the anticipation of Summer-time grilling, I've been using my indoor grill pan a lot. These Sweet and Spicy Pork Chops were absolutely amazing. They have a hint of sweetness from the brown sugar, and just the right amount of heat from the Cajun seasonings. So so yummy!

Sweet and Spicy Pork Chops
recipe adapted from: Food.Com

6 pork chops, thin and boneless
2 tablespoons olive oil
2 cloves garlic, minced
3 tablespoons brown sugar
1 teaspoon Cajun Seasoning (use less if you dont like a lot of heat)

DIRECTIONS:  Combine all of the ingredients in a large ziplock bag. Shake to mix and coat pork chops. Place bag in the refrigerator and marinate for 2-3 hours.

Heat an indoor grill pan or skillet to medium heat. Drizzle a little olive oil on the bottom of pan. (about 1 tablespoon)  Place 3 pork chops at a time onto the pan and cook 3-4 minutes on each side or until completely cooked.

Set cooked chops on a plate and tent with foil to keep warm while you cook the remaining pork chops.

Will be trying these tomorrow night (hopefully) but do not have the 'Cajun' seasoning on hand. What other spices would you suggest? We love hot and spicy so are willing to enjoy some heat!

We grill so much when warm weather hits. Thanks for another great recipe to round out our rotation of chicken and more chicken! I like the idea of the spicy and sweet:-)
