- In food processor or by hand chop 3/4 cup of the peanuts. In shallow dish combine chopped nuts and chili powder. Press pork chops into nut mixture to coat.
- In 12-inch skillet cook pork in hot olive oil over medium heat for 5 minutes on each side of until internal temperature reaches 155 degrees F.
*I had trouble with the temp reaching that high without waiting too long for fear of the outside edges burning, so I just took each chop and cut it in half lengthwise and there was plenty of peanut-y coating in the pan to coat all sides. To my giddy surprise, each piece was still tender – not tough or chewy…but it took a total of about 18 minutes instead of 10.
