Who knew dieting could be so delicious!

My hand is finally back to normal and cooking as well as blogging can begin again.  Keith and I have started our diets again and I have been looking for great tasting dishes that we can both eat that also is good for my type 2 diabetes.  Not a easy task.  I think you will really enjoy this one. 

Here is one we both said, "Wow, this is a 5" too.

Garlic and Soy Grilled Pork Chops

Serves 2

Grill up chunks of fresh vegetables alongside these lip-smacking pork chops for an irresistible outdoor feast. Bell pepper, sweet onion, and zucchini would work quite nicely. For an added veggie, steam asparagus and serve with a little melted garlic butter.  Sorry, no picture available.


2 boneless center-cut pork loin chops, trimmed of all visible fat
1 tablespoon light soy sauce
1 teaspoons minced garlic
1/4 teaspoon paprika (I used 1/8 tsp red pepper and 1/8 tsp paprika)
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon ground black pepper
Fresh herbs, for garnish


Brush the pork chops all over with the mixture of soy sauce, garlic, paprika, salt, and pepper. Cover and refrigerate at least 20 minutes or up to 2 hours.
Coat a grill rack or broiler-pan rack with cooking spray. Preheat the grill or broiler.(We grilled them with the veggie and it was wonderful.)
Cook the pork chops 4" from the heat, turning once halfway through cooking time, for 10 to 12 minutes, or until a thermometer inserted in the center of a chop registers 155°F and the juices run clear. Garnish with the herbs.

Let me know how you like them.
