You just can’t beat simplicity when it comes to food. Well, unless that simple food also happens to be ridiculously delicious. Which this dish is! These simple broiled pork chops take minutes to prepare and about 15 minutes to cook, which makes them a perfect midweek meal. The combination of fennel seed and pork is absolutely divine, especially when served beside a sweeter flavor like sweet potatoes or the classic applesauce.
It’s nice to keep a couple of extra spice shakers around. You can make a bigger batch of this seasoning mix and keep it in a shaker for whenever you cook pork (it’s also really tasty on pork roasts and good on chicken too). If you don’t have a shaker to put the spice mix in, a sieve will help you dust the pork chops more evenly than sprinkling with your fingers.
