Now time to plan a special dinner. I have a 50 lb. bag of red potatoes in the root cellar, So we had boiled potatoes with parley butter, steamed cauliflower and green peas and Basil Pork Chops. I found this recipe on Mommy What's For Dinner.
Basil Pork Chops
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 ounces each)
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.
Time to Prepare: 25 minutes
Be careful not to scorch the sugar! This is surprisingly good. My first taste I thought the basil might be overwhelming but by the second bite, I decided that it was "spot on". Try this if you are looking for something different.
