3     Tablespoons Olive Oil
1     Pound of Boneless Center Cut Pork Chops, Cubed
¼   Cup All-Purpose Flour
1     Teaspoon Chopped Fresh or 1/2 Teaspoon Dried Thyme Leaves
1     Teaspoon Paprika

    I love pork chops and this looks yummy.
    We stopped eating white rice years ago, although my wife likes to indulge in the occasional Basmati rice, which I also love. Brown rice has more texture, keeps you fuller and of course is a lot healthier too.

    Excellent presentation! Thanks for sharing.
