Pork Chops with Rosemary, Sage and Turmeric

Pork Chops with Rosemary, Sage & Turmeric Tonight the butcher shop had really nice, thick, bone in pork chops at a really good price.   In my ongoing quest to cook with ingredients that fight inflammation and support health in general I seasoned them with a dry rub consisting of sage, rosemary, turmeric, salt and pepper.   I pan seared to brown on both sides  then finished in a 400 degree oven for 15 min, let rest tented with foil for at least 5 minutes.

Spice rub: 1 Tbs ea sage, rosemary, 1 tsp turmeric and salt and several grinds for black pepper.

The turmeric gave the chops a distinctive yellow Pork chops with rosemary, sage and turmerichue.   I found that I had a bit too much turmeric when I seasoned this side.  The other side was more of a balance of the rosemary and sage.  The recipe for the rub reflects the correct amounts.

I topped the chops with mushrooms sauteed with tons of garlic and a side salad.

The spice combo on this was fantastic.  I will be using it again.  Regardless of  anything about ingredients for arthritis…this dish was really good!
