Greek Seasoned Pork with Lemon Couscous
Ingredients
  • 4  teaspoons  olive oil
  • 1 1/2  cups  coarsely chopped, unpeeled eggplant
  • 1/2  cup  chopped red onion (1 medium)
  • 4 1/2 inch thick  boneless pork loin chops
  • 1  teaspoon  Greek seasoning
  • 1 1/4  cups  reduced-sodium chicken broth
  • 1/4  cup  oil-packed dried tomatoes, drained and chopped
  • 3/4  cup  whole wheat couscous
  • 1  teaspoon  finely shredded lemon peel
  • 1  tablespoon  lemon juice
  • 1/2  teaspoon  bottled minced roasted garlic
  • 1/4  teaspoon  salt
  • 1  cup  coarsely chopped fresh spinach
Directions

1. In a large saucepan heat 2 teaspoons of the oil over medium heat. Add eggplant and red onion; cook about 5 minutes or until vegetables are tender, stirring occasionally.

2. Meanwhile, trim fat from chops. Sprinkle chops with Greek seasoning. In a large skillet heat the remaining 2 teaspoons oil over medium-high heat. Add chops; reduce heat to medium. Cook for 5 to 6 minutes or until just pink in center (145 degrees F), turning once. Remove from heat; let stand for 3 minutes.

3. Add broth and dried tomatoes to eggplant mixture. Bring to boiling. Stir in couscous, lemon peel, lemon juice, roasted garlic, and salt; remove from heat. Let stand, covered, for 5 minutes. Stir in spinach. Divide couscous mixture among serving plates. Top with chops.
