Avocado Lime Sauced Pork Chops

Avocado Lime Sauced Pork Chops

David thought this was unbelievable and I thought it was good, but not great.  It was certainly unique! The photo makes it look honestly a bit gross, but it definitely was good!

avocado lime pork chops

Ingredients:

  • Pork chops
  • Spices: 1/2 tsp paprika, 1/2 tsp chili powder, 1/2 tsp garlic powder, 1/2 tsp ground pepper
  • 1 avocado
  • 1/2 cup plain non-fat greek yogurt
  • 1/4-1/2 cup milk
  • juice from 1/2 of a fresh lime
  • 1 tsp olive oil

Directions:

Combine all of the spices into a bowl and dip the pork chops into the bowl on all sides.  Heat the olive oil in a pan over medium heat and let it get really hot (wait 2-3 minutes).  Add the pork chops and cook about 5 minutes each side (or until cooked through).  While the pork chops are cooking, prepare the sauce.  In a bowl, mash the avocado with a fork.  Next add the greek yogurt and lime juice and stir.  Gradually whisk in the milk until you get whatever consistency you desire (I liked mine to be just a little runny).  We served this with fresh corn cut off the cob and orzo (that we sort of all mixed together).*

 

 

*I made the orzo the way that the recipe recommends on the back of the box – It includes sauteing in a pan: fresh cut up tomatoes, tomato paste, and italian seasoning (I went salt free!), and then adding the cooked orzo to the mixture.  It was delish!
