Lemon Spinach Pork Chops

Servings 4 servings


  • 3 tablespoons whole wheat flour
  • 1/2 tablespoon brown sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 1 dash crushed red pepper flakes
  • 4 4-oz. boneless pork chops about 1/2-inch thick
  • 1/2 teaspoon olive oil
  • 1/2 cup dry white wine or use low sodium chicken broth
  • 2 teaspoons lemon juice
  • 2 cloves garlic pressed
  • 10 ounces baby spinach


  • In a shallow dish, blend together first 5 ingredients (flour through crushed red pepper flakes).
  • Dredge pork chops in this mixture. Heat the oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add pork chops and sauté for 3 minutes per side or until cooked through. Remove from pan and keep warm.
  • Add wine (or broth) and lemon juice to the skillet and whisk up all of the browned bits from the bottom of the pan, simmering for 1 minute. Add garlic and cook for 1 minute.
  • Arrange baby spinach on dinner plates and top each with a pork chop (the heat from the chops will wilt the spinach perfectly). Spoon the wine sauce over the chops and serve immediately. Enjoy!
