DirectionsRinse your pork chops off with water and pat dry. Then add either fresh lemon juice and cracked pepper or lemon pepper and montreal steak seasoning. (I prefer the fresh juice and cracked black pepper.)
Now refrigerate for 15 to 30 minutes.
[Note: If using lemon pepper seasonings from store please be cautious of the amount of salt. If it has alot of salt in it, use sparingly on your chops.)Prepare you pasta as directed on box.
Pour vegetable oil in your skillet and put on medium heat. When hot, remove chops from frig and place them individually into pan. Cook for 3 to 4 minutes on each side. Squeeze some fresh lemon over chops while in pan. Remember these are very thin chops and cook up quickly.Remove pasta and drain. Place in bowl and add tomatoes, green chiles, tomato paste, sugar, garlic and onion powder along with chopped cilantro. Add salt and pepper to taste.Now, place on medium serving dish and put the chops on top. Now squeeze more lemon and garnish with cliantro.
