Gluten-Free Pork Chop Dry Rub

Sugar-Free Sweet and Spicy Rubbed Pork Chops

A little bit of sweet, a little bit of spice, and a little bit of savory makes for a delicious meal. With these Sugar-Free Sweet and Spicy Rubbed Pork Chops, everything you need to know about them is in the name!

To start, they’re sugar-free yet they’re sweet, thanks to the help of Swerve. Swerve is a sugar-free, zero calorie, non-glycemic sweetener that is a cup-for-cup sugar replacement and comes in brown, regular granulated, and confectioners. So, we start with Swerve and add the spicy – chipotle chili powder. Next we add some more spices to make a complete, flavorful rub, and then, well, we rub the rub on the pork chops.

While the pork chops sit at room temperature for 30 minutes, take that time to prep some veggies, toss up a side salad, and/or chop some sweet potatoes to roast. While the pork chops are baking, roast the sweet potatoes, finish cooking your veggies or making your salad dressing, and by the time the chops have done cooking and resting … ta-da! Dinner is served.
