Turmeric Pork Chops for an Easy Weeknight Meal

Turmeric Pork Chops for an Easy Weeknight Meal | 31Daily.com

Turmeric Pork Chops are an excellent, quick and easy choice for weeknight meals. A savory and delicious skillet dish my entire family loves.




Generously spiced, these pork chops pair well with simple sides like a green salad with sliced boil eggs — one of my favorites! Or grilled crispy grilled potatoes you can cook in the same skillet. Add some steamed broccoli for a delicious and filling dinner.

I love the pungent flavor turmeric and cumin add to food. But the benefits even outweigh even the flavor. Turmeric, for instance, is an incredibly healthy spice. We wrote an article about the health benefits of turmeric a while back. It’s amazing what one teaspoon daily of this savory spice can do!
