    Excellent! A true crowd pleaser. Have made it many times since.

    Just the right amount of flavor and heat (from the spice rub). Topped with avocado and cilantro give it a professional look, and nice texture. We will put this on our dinner list again.

    absolutely delicious, very moist and perfect seasoning combination. Avacado and Cilantro on top was a great addition. i.served it with yellow spanish rice and Cuban beans.
    excellent 👍 will make it again as is. try an avacado and tomatoe salad with it.

    Was terrific. Used 2 boneless pork chops instead of the 4 as I'm cooking for 1 now. However, the oven time took longer then expected because it boneless I used the shortest time. Instead of straight paprika I used smoked paprika. It didn't seem to matter as far taste is concerned but I did use 2 gentle shakes of cayanne pepper. Next time only 1 shake. I believe the spiciness overwhelmed the smoked paprika. I will certainly make it again.
