    • 1 teaspoon allspice
    • 1 1/2 teaspoons salt
    • 2 tablespoons light-brown sugar
    Pork and Rice:
    • 6 center-cut boneless pork chops (4 ounces each)
    • 2 cups long-grain white rice
    • 1 15 ounce can kidney beans
    • 1 10 ounce package frozen corn, thawed
    • 2 scallions, sliced
    Cajun rub:
    Combine paprika, cumin, cayenne, allspice, salt and sugar. Reserve 1 teaspoon rub.
    Pork and rice:
    Sprinkle remaining rub on both sides of pork. Let stand 20 minutes. Bring 4 cups water to a boil in large saucepan. Add rice and reserved teaspoon rub. Cover; simmer 20 minutes. Drain and rinse beans; add to rice along with corn and scallions. Cover and cook 5 more minutes.
