To complement the rich, slightly sweet red pepper flavor of paprika, serve these chops with grilled tiny new potatoes and a salad of mixed baby greens, sweet onion and tomatoes with a sherry vinaigrette.

Marinating Time: 1-3 hours
Grilling Time: 8-10 minutes
Standing Time: 5 minutes
Yield: 2 servings
2 boneless top loin pork
chops, cut ¾-inch thick
(about 10 to 12 ounces
total)
Nonstick cooking spray
RUB
1 teaspoon paprika (for
a slightly smoky flavor,
use smoked sweet
paprika instead of plain
paprika)
½ teaspoon ground
coriander
¼ teaspoon salt
¼ teaspoon ground cumin
¼ teaspoon ground

2. Lightly coat cold grill rack with nonstick spray. Preheat gas grill to medium-high for direct grilling.
