Gluten Free Meals: Pork with Sweet potatoes and broccoli

Hey Folks! So the other day my sister told me that her good friend from school can't eat gluten! This is a VERY common allergy, so I searched around and found an awesome recipe that is gluten free! Even if you don't have this allergy, you will love it!

Pork with Sweet Potatoes and Broccoli
Grocery List:
1 bag (12 oz) fresh broccoli florets
2 tsp butter
4 sweet potatoes, scrubbed and pricked with a fork

1/2 tsp each ground ginger and salt
1/4 tsp each ground cinnamon and pepper
4 center-cut boneless pork loin chops (5 to 6 oz each)
Nonstick spray
Fresh apple slices (optional)

How to make it:
1. Heat a ridged grill pan that’s at least 171/2 x 111/2 in. or a barbecue grill.

2. Meanwhile place broccoli in a single layer on a 14-in.-long sheet of foil; fold up sides. Add 1/3 cup water; dot broccoli with butter. Cover with another sheet of foil; fold sides of top and bottom sheets together twice to seal.

3. Microwave sweet potatoes until tender when pierced.

4. Meanwhile mix Spice Blend ingredients; sprinkle on both sides of chops. Spray chops with nonstick spray. Place chops at one side of grill pan or barbecue grill and grill 5 minutes.

5. Turn chops over. Place foil packet on other side of grill pan or barbecue grill and grill 5 to 6 minutes until chops are barely pink in the middle and broccoli is crisp-tender when packet is pierced. Open packet carefully to let steam escape; serve with chops, potatoes and apple slices.
