Pomegranate Orange Pork Chops

First off I need to apologize for my photo. I couldn't wait to sit down and eat this pork chop that I started eating before I realized I needed to take a photo. I am completely in love with Pomegranates. Add that to orange and I'm a woman in heaven.

This whole meal only took about 15-20 minutes to prepare. Quicker than ordering a pizza.

Pomegranate Orange Pork Chops
5 WWPP per serving

1/2 tsp chili powder
1/4 tsp ground allspice
1/4 tsp ground red pepper (cayenne)
1/4 tsp salt
4 (4oz) boneless center cut pork chops
cooking spray
1/2 cup pomegranate juice (plain or flavored - I used plain POM Lite)
2 T balsamic vinegar
1 T sugar
1 tsp grated fresh orange rind

Combine the first four ingredients together and sprinkle over both sides of the pork chops.
Heat a non-stick skillet over medium-high heat. Spray pan with cooking spray. Add pork chops and cook 3 - 4 minutes on each side or until done. Remove pork chops from pan and keep warm.

Add pomegranate juice, vinegar and sugar to pan. Bring to a boil and cook for about 3 minutes until the sauce is reduced and becomes syrupy. Remove pan from heat and stir in the orange rind. Drizzle over the Pork Chops.

Serves 4

I served this Schwan's Baby Potatoes (WWPP 2) (microwave for 6 minutes) and Steamfresh spring vegetables (WWPP 2, this one came with a citrus sauce which added to the points value).
